Our planned delivery of an extra length of wood was delayed until tomorrow. This slowed us down as we couldn’t finish up the rafters and push on. However, we cleared the last of the old wood where the extra piece will go and prepared everything for tomorrow.

The challenge of the day was to work out how to nail the first few T&G boards on to the end on the eve. The last rafter ends somewhere in thin air, but after much ladder positioning, I managed to hit a few nails (left handed) at full stretch. We couldn’t panel right through, but we can fill in the gap once the wood arrives tomorrow.

Another hot and sunny day. We even built a tent using the ubiquitous battens and a large (Orissan)  bed spread as the heat was too great for the cheese and the two boys…
