Roof slabs


This photo came from Canada and shows a very sound roof covering done in a similar style to those seen across Europe . It is great to see these ancient crafts being applied expertly in the new world. I have seen the same type of construction in Vermont USA built by master craftsman Dan Snow assisted by Dieter Schneider the Swiss mason.

That is ancient artistry! Piling up the wood to create a roof is indeed a genius idea that has improved over time. It's an innovative idea that we should be thankful of. That is a special roof, indeed! It must be nice to see one in person.
