Garden sheds are normally a flat pack flimsy peace of rubbish, so it's nice when someone wants one built properly, like how a garden shed would have been built on a large estate a hundred years ago.
This one it built out of brick and block and I'm fitting a proper roof to it, the same as if it was a roof on a house.
|Nailing the rafters on|
It didn't take long to work out the cuts and lengths on the rafters and with only 8 on each side it wasn't a massive job. It was made a little bit more difficult by how the bricklayer had left it but I'm not one to moan.
|Working off ladders is never ideal|
|I'll cut the overhang on the rafters afterwards|
|Nice, tidy birdsmouth (or I think so)|
In doing this it enables the bricklayer to build up the gables, then I can come back and finish off the rest of the roof, I'll probably end up tiling it as well. The roof will still need some bracing and ceiling collars when I come back (like I siad this is a proper little roof).
Not how I spend every Sunday morning!
