Vintage Roof


I have this image because of the automobile, but check out the roof on the home in the background.

Ain't that something?!

Re: Vintage Roof


Looks like what is known as a Thatch Roof.

Generally called out as 3:1, 5:1 etc. meaning the number of shingles, #1 Cedar, there were stacked per row.

VERY cool looking roofs and EXPENSIVE....

The only thatch roofs I know are built of layered dead vegetation, straw, etc... Our resident brickie Stu has one on his house in England.

Now if they would just steam bend the fascia and rakes

There are a few of them locally, unfortunately some idiots shingled one with some dimensional shingles.

har! That is a 1924 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo 8A with custom 5 passenger coachwork.

It was bought "right off the floor" at the 1924 New York Salon Show by a certain Mr. Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Pierre Filibert Guglielmi di Valentina d'Antonguella.

He died a little more than a year later at the ripe old age of 31.

There's better pics. On zillows website but they won't let me copy them. I remember when they redid the roof about 10 years ago it made the newspaper. It looked really good new but now I think it looks like crap.
