Drumlin Fold was an ambitious renovation project to turn the old tractor shed into a stunning guest suite, complete with bedroom, ensuite and its own kitchen and sitting room. The designer needed to find a low pitch clay roof tile that would match the traditional clay pantiles that had been on the main farmhouse for almost twenty years.


Melodie interlocking clay tiles were chosen to fulfil the design requirements. Melodie is a single interlocking precision engineered clay pantile with an extremely robust interlock and integral weatherbars and drainage channels. The outstanding weather performance meant that it was able to achieve the low pitch requirements of the project.


The completed roof undoubtedly exceeded its potential with the rustic aesthetic achieved by using the clay interlocking pantiles. The Romanesque feel of the completed roof helped to blend seamlessly with the existing clay tiles used on the wider property.
