Unthatched

I spotted this house during my wanderings over the holidays. Don't you think it should have a thatched roof? It wouldn't work here in Toronto but it appears as if the owners have tried to give it that look by wrapping the shingles over round forms at the edges. It looks like a B&W except for the grass!

Thatched or not, it is a lovely place!

I bet if it was in England it would have a thatched roof.

How very unusual. I wonder, though, if the shingles crack when wrapped like that?

Birdman said...

It does have an old world look to it. Might it work better in an English countryside?

They did a good job on trying to achieve that look. I like the stone fence too.

At first glance it does look like a thatch. English cottage - or alpine chalet? Certainly trying to be something it isn't, really.

You are right the look is there but climate is wrong here.

It is a beautiful home. I'd like to see the inside. Is that a painting or a window up high in front? It does need a little power washing, I think. :)

It does look a little chunky.

I thought it did have a thatched roof. Do any houses in Ontario have thatched roofs?

A large house. If it is rare the roof edge.
