Coconut palm being prepared to reroof the kitchen
the fallen dried up coconut palm collected and now soaking in the river overnight
I have to re roof the kitchen every two years with coconut palm thatching and here are some photos of it from the point the fallen palm is left to soak in the river overnight, and then taken out, first to split in two and then to weave and then dry. Finally stacking them awaiting roofing once we have the 300 we need.
splitting the soaked palm to make two sides to be thatched and used in pairs
all joining in the thatching
Drying the wet woven palms in the sun
