Roof is going UP

I have been very consumed by the barn and have just let this blog teeter on extinction but be ready it is back!!

So, the new images will show you how we put on the external skin of the roof.  It was a massive job getting these 25 foot sheets up a ladder and on a roof but it all went smooth. We ended up replacing most of the old timbers because of dry-rot and wood worms.  At one point we jacked up the whole A-frame to slid out the old beams and get in new ones. And it went well without a hitch. I will let the photos do the rest of the talking but everything is moving along just fine.  We have not had a bad day of weather in over a month.  This is some sort of record. And I am of course getting out on the water to enjoy some of it.
