Today we took advantage of the clear weather to finally finish off the roof we put on 6 months ago! Mostly we have been waiting for the weather to get warm enough so that the glue will dry and cure properly in the required 48hours the instructions states.
We went around the three sides (the back edge was done a couple of weeks ago) trimming the excess OSB boards off! We calculated that we needed an overhanging distance of 120mm before the Oak facia boards sticks down. This distance is made up of two layers of vertical and horizontal 25mm thick battens and 19mm of Cedar wood coverings, with a 50mm air gap around behind the facia and up and over the Cedar to allow the whole wall to breathe.
Next we glued and screwed the sloping boundaries made of a 100mm by 50mm Pine timber sliced diagonally at 45degrees to make a chuck of solid edging with 25mm flat tops and 75mm bottoms. The corners were mitred together.
We covered up again just before the rain started drifting in! Phew!
