All the rafters are from locally felled larch, much of it windblow or standing deadwood. They are quite substantial because a living turf roof is very heavy. I calculate around 8 tons in winter with snow loading. However the straw is capable of supporting 40 tons plus, so we have a reasonable safety margin!
