Viroqua library to host program about thatched roofing | News

McIntosh Memorial Library of Viroqua will be hosting a program titled “Thatched Roofing with Water Reed.” The program will be held inside the library lobby, Thursday, March 31, at 6 pm with Ashley Watry.

During the program Watry will share her process of learning the building techniques of round-pole framing and thatched roofing. The speaker will share her personal home building plans and present information on opportunities to participate in the home building process.

Watry is a local farmer and natural builder with experience and training in various natural building techniques including strawbale, cob construction, round-pole framing, and thatched roofing. Watry plans to build her own small house out of natural and local materials over the next few years.
