Well its going well, pleased to say!
John bought a fantastic glue, Evostick instant, which loves the thatch, glues it perfectly straight onto the wood of the house.
Firstly cut out the shape of the roof onto graph paper, then attached this to a square of thatch and cut out the shape. Glued it onto the wood and then after drying gave it a haircut to go around the trickier shapes.
As you can see it works quite well, need to finish off the eaves, have done above the kitchen window, then will fill in any bits and give a further haircut.
Once all the sides are done, and the dormer window which is going to be a tricky bit, I will lay a further layer on the top join and make a pattern in thin sticks .
Heres's a pic of the back of the house done and showing the window, with Lola giving instructions to me!!!!
Abit high from the glue so off for a lie down :-)
