For the start of the week, we did a massive tidy up operation in our workshop today! It was very necessary as the finished rafters are very long and we needed the room to have a stack of ready-to-go materials, a working assembly area and finally, a stack of completed pieces. For example, the largest rafter is 5.5metres long and 400mm wide. And in total, we will be making just about 200 of them in all sizes!! So This meant having one major spring clean (in the middle of Summer!) of the whole workshop, moving out pieces of equipment and bits and pieces we did not need at this precise moment in time to our other storage rooms and then rearranging everything on the side workbench so we could clear away the middle part of the workshop, collapse down a line of storage tables and swept the place clean!
We are one very dusty individuals at the end of the day! But at least, we are now in the position to get a production line going once we have designed and set up the equipment, tools and templates which we will start doing tomorrow!!
