When we first received our house design, we knew it was going to be a bit unusual due to the unfortunate orientation of the block. In my blissful ignorance, I didn’t consider the challenges it would introduce during the building process. One of these challenges is an interesting roof line.
The elevations above give you some idea of what the roof carpenters are facing. The good news is that it’s only down one side of the house, so the other side is fairly straightforward.
So yesterday they started on the roof, and today we saw the first pitched beams. Made my heart flutter just a little. One of my readers asked me to take some detailed pictures, so here they are. Let me know if there’s a particular area you want me to focus on.
