The Shed Takes Shape

This collage shows the progress on 'The Shed'.   We now have the framework of two of the four walls - and mighty impressive it is too.   Today we had a visit from Peter and Caroline Dale-Leech who run the Red House Stables and Working Carriage Museum in Darley Dale, Derbyshire.Posted by Picasa Peter is a joiner and carriage maker so he rolled up his sleeves and got stuck in to some tricky joints (lower middle picture)!   Caroline was to have been a judge at the Great Yorkshire Show - cancelled this year because of the rain.

The massive structure that looks a bit like a CND badge (remember them?) is not the shape of the roof - it is the bracing for the west gable end wall.   The notch at the top of the upright post indicates the height of the ridge beam.
