The 18th century farmhouse Galmis 7 is located northeast of the village of Rüttenen, below the Balmfluechöpfli. It is characterised by a striking hipped roof and a completely preserved Hochstud construction. The original wooden shingle roof, which consists of hand-split nail shingles, has been preserved under the later Eternit roofing. This is currently being repaired and made visible again. Experience the craft of shingling on site. The building consultant of the cantonal monument preservation Sara Schibler, the shingle maker Bruno Fallegger and the owner Michael Steiner are on site and explain how the repair of the shingle roof came about and show how the craft of shingling (production and assembly) works.
