[Cob] Eyebrow window with living roof...Yun Que yunk88 at hotmail.com

Cat here! I see no reason to let a little change like that stop you from having the look you want...eyebrow windows after all are not only made in thatched houses. They can also be found in contemporary building. Their is bending ply that is available ...a bit pricy because it is used in cabinet construction, if you can afford it all good if not then look to the way boats are built. The old wooden ones. They got some great water tight curves didn't they! their you go the eyebrows are back in! PS. Might want to do a first as a whole roof for an out house roof or dog shelter to get the feel for it. Stick to the actual size you will be using for your house. Tighter the curve the tougher. for the good of all C. ______________________________________________________________ From: "Edward Allen" <edward.allen69 at gmail.com> To: coblist at deatech.com Subject: [Cob] Eyebrow window with living roof...
