natural roofs

The pizza oven is roofed by catalan vault.   It is then plastered with a lime-soil-sand plaster, then pressed, then lime wash.

The last two nights we have had hard rain, 8cm each time and there is no leaking except one cornor over the wall where i put plain wet mortar.

This roof i struggled with personally.  kind of long story but in the end it is 7cm tiles on end, then another 3 layers of tiles with mud mortar.  work on  the groins on the first layer and the other layers it doesnt matter so much.

  2. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
