Garage roof completed

Click collage to enlarge

After just two days of monumentally hard work by Peter Bennett and me the roof of the garage block is finished.   It has transformed from looking like the remains of a beached whale to something resembling a building.   Note Peter working in what will be the workshop in the top left picture; this gives an idea of scale.   The neighbouring industrial unit is totally hidden, which was part of the idea when planning this building.   For a pair of amateurs who have never done any roofing before we are quite chuffed with our efforts.   Extremely heavy showers kept interrupting the roofing work - but we always had shelter and not a drop came through.

There are four clear panels on the south side of the roof - hidden from view from the public faces of the structure but very useful from inside - see bottom left picture.

Until the walls are in place it looks a bit like a market hall from the middle ages.
