Hi,

I am about to start building a small cob structure and thought about trying a thatched roof. The surrounding fields are all full of juncus so we thought about using this. We have absolutely no experience thatching but thought
it would be fun to give it a go! Does anybody have any experience or resources they could share?

Thanks.

Mike

Howdy Mike , welcome to permies. Pretty adventurous of you all. I have never tried it but have seen some videos on the web. You might try doing a search at youtube.
