Yesterday we (me and Peter Bennett) nailed on the first few Onduline sheets of the garage roof. This remarkable material is made of paper and bitumen essentially, is light and flexible. Once things are set up nice and square, progress can be rapid. In fact we were well and truly rained off. Still, with the roof appearing and with the barge boards in place it is really starting to look like a very fine building indeed.
The rain that falls on this 60 sq m roof will eventually drain into the tower's rainwater harvesting tank. It would just be handy if the rain could wait a while.
