Old roofs might have leaked quite a bit and the building remain "sound" especially if it is mostly built of stone. We have different standards of indoor comfort than folks had in the past. In ye olden days, being indoors meant you were mostly dry and the wind wasn't blowing.

People keep sending me photos of old huts in Iceland and other places, some now heritage sites and there they are standing cheek by jowl with shingled buildings and everything's still looking sound. For sure THEY were built before EDPM pond liner or any other sorts of plastic. I have some pretty good idea but would love to hear from someone who knows for sure how it was done.
