260 Year Old Roof in Barmouth
This is the culmination of 3 years of hard work for our company, beginning with a opportunity presented by Ned Scharer of the Natural Building Centre, Llanrwst, to train towards a NVQ level 3 in heritage roofing. A year of training from Richard Jordan and hands on experience on this beautiful roofing project made us aware that to create these roofs, you need a special type of skill set, an old way of thinking and working; the spark had been lit.
To produce these roofs, we now work out of an old victorian slate work mill in Llechwedd in our home town of Blaenau Ffestiniog; the town that roofed the world.
Luckily we were presented an opportunity to restore an old roof in Barmouth, a house with the oldest roof which had finally given up the ghost- it was time to make a roof of our dreams!
