A week of 1sts

Wed 24 Sep 2008

After being almost one of the first things on site, way back in January, our first skylight has been installed today. This is the first small step in creating the formed roof space for the new building, more challenges ahead I think with all the head scratching thats going on.

At last after much discussion, designing, engineering, re-designing and further discussion work has begun on our new roof. As there is a real variance in the dimensions between the walls, along the whole length of the building it has been decided we should proceed with a traditional roof structure. This means they can fit the roof to the existing structure and allow for the internal curved roof structure within the main living space in the barn. Lets hear it for the first ridgebeam and one step closer to the building being wind and watertight.
