The roof framing was a long and challenging haul. Add to that, the need to cover the framing twice for several days of rainy weather, and the speed of progress seemed to crawl for a couple weeks or so. I have condensed several weeks of work to give a complete account of the roof framing in a single post. Here we go…
We started by installing the two transition rafters on either end of the dormers.
Dormer ridgebeam in place between the two transition rafters
5″ Timber screws at the end of the rafters
Laminated main ridgebeam runs the length of the dormers
Dormer rafters in place
Stained cypress facia
Stained gable rake

Arborion wrapped up tight against the approaching rain storms
Inside the weather wrapped Arborion there is already a sense of security
When the sky finally cleared, we were ready to get back to building.
