The Land Of Thatched Roofs

Despite the cost of installation, repair and staggering insurance rates, in Nordfriesland, the thatched roof~enduring symbol of fables and old-fashioned romance~ lives on in all corners of the land.


  1. I love Friesland. Love it.
    And I love the thatched houses. My uncle had a farm in Friesland and it was all thatched. I loved it there.

  2. there is something wonderful about thatched roofs, they are artful and seem harmonic with nature. Love the stone wall in that first photo as well.

  3. Oh, the thatched roofing option is another type green roofing, right? Hmmm… the style of this roofing is similar to houses in fairytale stories. But this is actually cool! The materials are organic and eco-friendly!
