Sorry it's been a quite week on the blog - I've been really busy!
Managed to get the roof on the extension!
It's now felted and battened meaning that it's waterproof from the top and ready to tile!
I still have a few things to do inside the roof (which I'll do tomorrow - Sunday).
Here's some pictures of some of the frame work -
|Cuts on the jack rafters|
|Hip and jack rafters either side|
|Beams as ceiling binders but also to form a truss to support the purlins in the roof|
Feels good to put a lid on the place and to be honest it's been one of the hardest little roofs I've done just because of how it cuts intot he old one and that it has purlins, I don't think I could have gone for a truss one just because of how complicated it is.
I've also had a bit of help over the last week or so, so big thanks to Andy, Dill, Nick and Dave who've all come at different times to lend a hand, the days on my own always seem very slow by comparison!
If I finish off a few structural things in the roof tomorrow I'll be pleased with how half term gone! Just the job of tiling to go on the roof then (as well as fitting gutters, etc) but that's not straight forward either!
