Reciprocal round roof

This workshop will teach you how to design and erect a reciprocal roof with hand-carved logs. In the course of this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Use trigonometry to calculate the dimensions of each rafter and the position of each notch
  • Move and work heavy logs safely
  • Use hand tools to carve joints on each log
  • Erect the structure without using any heavy machinery

To really understand the whole process of designing and erecting a reciprocal roof, you may need to come to us at least on two occasions: a first time to work through all the theoretical explanations and to carve some joints, and another time later during the summer to erect the roof once the walls are up.

Price: 150€ per adult for the whole course (lunch included on each day)

We aim to share our knowledge with everyone regardless of their budget. If you want to come to one of our workshops but do not have the steady income to afford it, please get in touch with us.
