Sheathing, gables and cladding

Long time with no posts but things have been progressing nonetheless. The gables are up, all sheathing are in place, most battens are in place and about 20% of the burnt timber cladding is in place. A lot of learnings in the process but it's nice to finally see some parts of the build actually fully finished.

New scaffolding and new roof

As we never managed to get north facing roof covered with the first protective layer, it's been covered by 3 large tarps until now. With a new scaffolding purchased we got hold of a great contractor who came in a did a great job in just a few hours covering the whole roof up.

Workshop sheathing

With the frame up we go to work with the next thing we could do ourselves, the sheathing. While to roof is not done yet the sheathing was something we are ok with doing ourselves.

The workshop frame goes up

We've been busy the last couple of weeks with the last preparations getting all material, screws, scaffolding, nails, machines etc. in place for the planned easter weekend framing. There was a lot of things that needed to work out right and while not everything went as smooth as we were hoping it's fantastic to finally see frame fully erected.

Workshop changes

When we designed the workshop roof, its slope was decided based on what we were planning to do on the house to make the roof a distinct connection between the two buildings. However, after a few weeks of thinking and designing we've decided to change the roof slope of the workshop.
