On the building site

Friends of us who recently moved to the village and open their restaurant in a few months time like to build and restore in the traditional way. Materials (like tatch) are resourced as close by as possible and the construction of this roof window is also something not many people dare to undertake nowadays.


Mac Tatcher

Mac Tatcher is THE Tatcher everyone in our village knows. He grew up in Elim (from old the place where the best South African tatchers come from) and moved to Stanford one day. There he has a thriving little business. He knows how to build a roof, where to get the best tatch but asking for his original family name … well…. “Everybody knows me as Mac Tatcher”.
