Roofing A Shed

My brother was putting his house on the market and wanted to finish a few jobs off before he did. 
One of them was to do something about the brick shed in the garden. He'd taken the roof off sometime ago and hadn't got round to doing anything with it. 

 The brick work sloped the roof the wrong way so I decided it was best if we built up a some timber frame across the front so we could gain the height we needed. Then add in a wallplate at the back and sloping sides.

Fitting A Suspended Ceiling

I got a message about this job a short while ago. Fitting a suspended ceiling to help create a new music studio for one of my customers.
 A fairly simple job. Fitted and bolted two supporting beams then used joist hangers to suspend the other timbers. All the bolts are in sheer (and there's plenty of them) making it a real strong job. I used large timbers so there would be no sag in the ceiling. Two rows of noggins gives the plasterboard full support at the edges as well so there should be no cracks.

Next we need to add loads (and I mean loads) of insulation ten board it with sounds deading plasterboard. I also need to add lots of fixing points in the ceiling so things can be hung from it if needed.
