A larger than normal conservatory I'm sure you'll agree! 10m long using planned green oak, the majority of the frame was built in the workshop by the joiner and then we've erected it on site and cut the roof on.
Trusses to support the purlins in the roof
The hexagonal part of the frame - tricky to install!
All the roof beams are exposed so we had to be accurate with our cuts otherwise they'd always show up. The valley wasn't even on a 45 degree angle so all the usual books and workings were no good to us!
Another tricky detail dealing with the termination of the purlin into the valley. No detail provided by the architect so we had to make it up on site, we were quite pleased with the result
The hips on the hexagonal section of roof proved to be tricky due to the angles.
But they look really good from underneath.
A really interesting project and not of a type we get to do very often.
