This morning, we carried on with the manufacturing and installing of framework pieces to build up the “Dormer” roof section ready for the Conservatory. The two long valley rafters were finished and got installed up on the “P” section of the roof.
We had to file away the edge of the cement board so these diagonal beams can reach pass and over to where the guttering will be.
Next, we cut the horizontal ridge beam which had a complex joint to connect to the two diagonal valley rafters

And a vertical post from the main wall of the building. All was glued and screwed into place.

It was a short day today but tomorrow, we will continue with this job by making a set of rafters that will come down from the Ridge beam and sit on top of the valley beams!
