Historical building in Åkraberg, Sweden

When the new rye bundles from Latvia was ready, it was time to change a roof for a one historical building in Åkraberg, Sweden. I was proud to help the project leader Joar Nilsson to change the roof with my produced rye straw. A work was done exactly like it was done historically. Straw was tied with a birch. The birch shoot was twisted and become to a binding material round roof laths.

To help to tie the twisted birch shoot we used a special needle. The project was completed in a 3 weeks. A working team joined also Hannes Bonhoff, with who was easy to work and discuss interesting topics about wild bees. Our work was highly valued and local journalists interested. This year we will continue the project at that place.
