Up On the Roof

Dave adding pieces to the SE side of Marley Hill shed roof
Ian working on a ladder tied over the ridge .....
..... assisted by Steve in the cherry picker
Screwing sheets to the purlins
These are the original 30 year old sheets, which we intend as a temporary measure
The underlying trusses, purlins & fastenings were the problem, & are being permanently renewed

We have made & positioned copies of the 1930s trusses, rather than guess the 1850s originals
Steve .....
