Now that we have our part list sorted, the first pieces of timber can be generated and put up on the steel I-Beams to start forming the structure and framework for the Skylight.

The first pieces were made from ripping in half planks of 89mm CLS timber down the middle to form 44mm by 38mm pieces. These went up on the lower flanges of the I-Beams on the inside.  This support piece provides a mounting point for the tall plywood panels that will go from the very bottom of the I-Beams, all the way to the top just under the glazing framework.



We have done about half the way around, about 15 metres of a total of 35 metres. Tomorrow, that will be completed and the next job is to chop and slice the various timber and sheet materials into required sizes.
