Taking advantage of the better weather today, we went to finish off the task of installing a couple of sheets of cement boards to complete the gable triangular section of the wall.

Then we tidied away the remaining spare cement sheets and stored them in our sheet material storage tent. We have six sheets left for future jobs like the rain filtration unit.
After lunch, we sliced and cut two long diagonal 95mm by 45mm thick timber rafters to conclude the framework for this dormer roof structure that will connect to our Conservatory (which will be built in a couple of years). There was quite a complex joint to make to connect to the sloping valley rafters sticking out of the building(as the picture reveals below)

Then these two final pieces were carefully fitted, making slight adjustments until all was good and tight, at which point, they were glued and screwed together. The excess valley beams were sliced flushed afterwards.

This concludes the building of the framework of the whole roof and the next job is to produce the Oak Facia boards that goes all the way around the edge of the roof.
