Raising the Roof

Following a great effort by Wonder of Wood and by Settle Coal, the roof trusses went on without the slightest problem this morning - and everything lined up perfectly.   Wonder of Wood pulled out the stops and cut and delivered the purlins and the massive horizontal lintel first thing this morning.   Then Settle Coal's Hiab crane lifted the trusses gently into place.   Picture shows crane driver Peter (PC) Claughton (left) and neighbour Les (to whom especial thanks), both confident enough to stand under the roof overhang.   The heap of apparent firewood we brought from Appleby really is beginning to look like a building now.
