Fixing the lower rafters in place involved measuring the overhang of the eve and keeping them the same. We completed this and stood back to admire the work when we realised the line was all wrong. The eve didn’t line up with the dormer? Of course not, the wall is not straight. We also realised we needed to plan out the tiling to match the other side.
Lots of string lines later, we reset all the rafters and stood back. Perfect.
Next we packed up the middle purling. Looking across the bottom set of rafters, we could see a flat, aligned roof like structure.
Next we fitted the ridge board. We cut the plumbs at the top ridge and placed the top rafters. Bolting down tomorrow, we hope.
