Now that the pole ends were trimmed off, we had to be extra careful not to let the grass cross over the peak of the roof yet. Because the material will settle over time, the two sides had to remain as separate as possible for about two more feet above the now-trimmed pole ends, to keep the felted grass from binding.

When the go-ahead was later given, vithior would be placed across the join, and grass stacked across both sides to close out the peak of the roof. Wooden hånglor would then be installed to further help hold the roof in place.
