Thank you Greenman! I like the guide and plans included on Fiber Thatch's web site! To quote from their comparision table: "A fully packed 40ft. container packed with Fiber Thatch® material cover a roof area of 3696 m²" Hmmmm....Me thinks my entire house, which needs to be reroofed this Spring, should have a new thatch roof! That'd toast their buns.
We may have found an inspector, through my pop's friend, that will come out and show us what to do and then sign off on the whole thing. Pop's friend sent us an e mail containing the name of the brand of cigars the inspector craves.
Again...thanks to all for your support, great ideas and input! I love you guys, man!
When the warm weather returns and the Lagoon Lanai is put back to rights, I will have a lil shin dig! You will all be big guests of honor!

I think that FiberThatch (Grass Thatch Tile) is what Disneyland's using to thatch the roof of the control booth for the Tea Cup ride and the Mad Hatter Shop right now.

I am the California Rep for a new artificial thatch. It has a 20 year warranty for waterproofing, texture and color. It has the look, feel and even rustling sound of natural leaves and is UV inhibited. Designed for use in high heat, humidity or freezing. It can be applied as a shingle for sheathed roof structures or with a fixed rail attached directly to rafters for a natural look. Here is what it looks like. I will have my web site up within a few weeks and displays by this spring.
