Roof shingles workshop

It was when the Safien barn conversion project began, that the Safien roof shingles workshop was set up. Local people from Safien make shingles and in this way find an additional source of income while at the same time preserving an ancient craft. Whenever possible, the Safien barns are roofed with the local product. Find out more by taking a guided tour.
