For another shortened day of work, we started on the “L” and “M” sections of the roof and got the second row fitted.



It is very very hot out there in the full blast of the Sun and we are quite glad that we are only working a half day today. We will continue on Monday after we have rested and give our bodies a chance to recover, especially our knee joints as they are feeling the strain after having to clamber up and down the roof a few dozen times on the series of foot rails.

It only needed two more rows of plywood boards and one tiny little “cap” to complete it all, including coping with the steel structural strap going up the middle rafter (we had to drill clearance holes for the head’s of the coach screws).



Then, we hauled up 21 more sheets of plywood up to our working platform so we can start work tomorrow on tackling the three sections of roof that are all grouped together, the “L” and “M” and “N” on three sides of the rectangle.

It was incredibly hot […]
