On the Verge

We needed our wood delivery, due yesterday. Without this we began clearing the remaining tin around the valley. We stacked the tiles out of the way and checked the state of the ridge.

The wood finally arrived at around 12. No time to waste, so be began preparing it and soon had it on the roof. We needed to place the new piece right out on the verge at an angle. Once in place we would be able to mark a series of cuts on the other rafters.

Having marked things out (more than once) we made the cuts and put the wood back in place. This was all difficult as it was out over the verge and a bit exposed. Also it was difficult to pin in place.
