Cottage Has A Roof

The roof is on! In this photo the 12 foot ladder next to the building helps to set the scale.

It took 12 days to put the roof on the cottage.

Work was done in four phases. Preparing the building, fabricating and installing beams, setting rafters, then sheathing.

There still is more work to do - some trimming and beautifying.

Then the top layers can be installed. The waterproof membrane and the standing seam metal.

The building is darker than anticipated inside. I thought the south facing windows would be contributing more light than they do.

More cob will the added to the top of the walls to close the building in.

Most sunsets are fairly clear but this one was dusty.
