What is a Thatched Roof? Basically it is the craft of building a roof with dry vegetation such as straw, water reed, or palm fronds, and layering the vegetation so as to shed water away from the inner roof. It is a very old roofing method and has been used in both tropical and temperate climates. Thatch is still employed by builders in developing countries, usually with low-cost, local vegetation. This process is used throughout the world and has been in use from the early development of human civilization. This instructional will hopefully help you recreate this look on your models with ease and the help of terrycloth.

In this category TUTORIALS will be posted that allow you to create the one-of-a-kind artistic look for your buildings that all of us admire but never quite figure out how to achieve.
Thingsfromthebasement has partnered with Tony Rieger to provide modeling tips on those techniques used for the Russian Village (our first kickstarter).
You will be able to read through a tutorial on screen but also download and print for easier access during your work.
