Summerhouse main roof complete
Last night and today, we got the rest of the roof on the summerhouse. I've been priming more trim, so it was mostly Glyn getting the roofing sheets on! First, a strip of bitumen tape on top of the gable support beams.
The final roof sheet. There are five on each side.
The storm clouds were gathering as Glyn screwed down the last sheet.
He was just in time! Starting with a flash of lightning and a huge roll of thunder, we had a proper summer storm. The roof worked perfectly, with the wide eaves overhangs throwing the rainwater well away from the side walls.
