Thatched roof house with harvested rice

A typical scene on a beautiful, blue-sky day at Shirakawa-go. The Shirakawa-go area has been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List at the "Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama" World Heritage Site. The houses you see are known as "gassho-zukuri" houses. The name refers to the similarity of the shape of the steeply-pitched roofs to the shape of hands folded in prayer ("gassho"). Here, in the village of Ogimachi, silkworms were once raised under the rafters.

Great brief description of roof designs. Each roof is designed to fit particular needs and aesthetics. Certain environments require particular designs in order to handle the elements. Slanted roofs are required for areas with a high density of snow in the winter months.Thanks for sharing this post.

Very good job on the roof. Yep, I wouldn't have removed the solar panels, those areas are well-protected. You chose a great day, lots of sun for quick drying when washing and applying the material. Sherman should last for quite a few years more. You've got the mechanical skills to keep him running. Looks really good. Nice when it rains and you know you've done maintenance. see more at ROOF EGDE PROTECTION
