Roofers: Day 3 – green oak barn

Thursday 3/6/21

Mathew and Charlie continue to make fantastic progress on the roof.

Today the lefthand hip elevation was completed.

The Velux window went in on the rear elevation. Note that the position of the lower horizontal of the rafter frame is a lot lower than the Velux frame. This will mean that when I come to board this out, the board at the bottom of the Velux will be plumb. This will mean that there will be no horizontal surface to catch dust. Clever.

You can see from this picture of the Velux from the outside that good progress was also made on slating the rear elevation of the roof.

During the day, the first dry ridge was also laid out. As well as providing the necessary ventilation between the roof insulation and the underside of the tiles, I think these dry ridges look really good.
