« Part 16: Bathroom Extension Part 17 of A New Start series Part 18: Bathroom Framing and roofing »

The framing crew arrived on time this morning and despite the bad weather rain and strong winds they have progressed a lot further than I would have expected, as you can see from the pictures.


When they started work, they were surprised that the existing roof, which is quite new had stayed in place, as the walls supporting the roof were not too sound and the connection to the wall was not as good as it could have been. Most of the morning was taken up by making the loose bricks sound which the the new roof was to be laid, and started to make the existing roof safe for us.

Here is a shot of the type of support being added to the existing roof.

I know this crew quite well and they will be working until about 7:30 tonight, then I can go in and start my work in moving tiles, and blocks so they can sure up the North side of the roof tomorrow morning – at least the weather tomorrow is forecast for full sun and 22°C (72°F).

I also managed to move all the rubble from the demolition from sunday and stacked all the wood ready for burning next winter.
