Fixing a whole where the rain gets in ...
This house is having its roof re-thatched. Notice how you can see right through the rafters into the house. There is nothing on the inside of the house between the thatch and the ceiling -- when you look up you see the thatch.
Thatched homes are seen on two types of houses: the very rich who can afford to maintain them, and the very poor who cannot afford and roofing material other than what they can cut growing in fields.
