Today, we finished off preparing all the parts to build the nine rafters that will fill in the two ends of the “M” section of the roof. The CLS timber were chopped down with their proper 32 degrees angled ends at their required lengths.
Then, with all the left-over pieces of the timber, we made more noggings for future manufacturing of more rafters and finished off the morning with a general clean up of the workshop, ready for the gluing and nailing of the rafter in the afternoon.
In the afternoon we assembled all nine rafters, starting with three at once!
All nine rafters are now created and sitting drying and setting ready to be installed on Monday. Also, on Monday, we will slice the bevel ends on all rafters too and get them all up by the end of the day – we hope!
