The works on the roof of Casa Navàs have started this morning and these should culminate with the reconstruction of the gable. The works to recover this element of the house, which was destroyed during the Civil War, began at the end of January and, since then, the stonecutters, professionals from Pedra Maties de Solsona company, have been sculpting the panels of the crowning. During the next two weeks, they will have finished all the reproductions and, therefore, now is the time to prepare the roof of Casa Navàs for the gable.
Throughout this week, the roof will be raised, and work will begin to vary its geometry. Next week, a three-dimensional steel structure will be installed and this will be supported on the existing pillars and a triangle attached at the rear of what will be the gable. Using the plans of the three-dimensional steel structure, a new roof with ceramic dovetail, thermal insulation and reusing the original tile for the finish.
If the weather conditions and the state of alarm due to the COVID-19 pandemic permit, the forecast is that, in the middle of May, placing the gable stones will begin. The goal is to have the entire reconstruction process completed before the end of June.
