Where old meets new

In fine weather we spent the first part of the day cutting and oiling the ends of the new wood which will show under the new eve. With this complete and the weather looking good, we began to strip away the last of the old timbers, clearing the space for us to lay out the new rafters.

We had to build a new post for the the corner of the building. Any thoughts that the old wood is rotten or soft were quickly displaced by the smoke from the drill which worked hard to make a hole for the bolts.

Once everything was clear we laid out some new timbers to check the approximate levels. As could have been predicted, there a lot of packing and cutting to do to before the roof is flat(ish).
