Project: Construction & Installation of Tiled Roofs at Viskop Private Resort

On 19th September 2014 a savage fire spread through the coastal resort of Viskop situated at the mouth of the Chefani river in Chintsa; fanned by a strong south-westerly wind the fire ripped through ten thatched houses of the total twenty-two in a matter of minutes.

On this project we also stripped the thatching laths and installed a timber tongue and groove ceiling in the rondavel.  Continue reading “Project: Thatch Guesthouse Converted to Metrotiles, Hogsback”
