Paradise Farm is thought to be the largest thatched private dwelling in Europe. The roof is approximately 1,675m² – 180 thatchers’ square. The entire roof structure was covered with TAS100 Thatch Fireboards. The boards are 9mm calcium silicate and offer a one hour fire rating. The underside of the rafters were completely filled with a 150mm depth of Thatchbatts® which offer additional fire protection and ensure all acoustic and thermal values are met.









The thatching was carried out by Ian Parkinson of Parkinsons Master Thatchers.
