Building an observatory. Construction #12

A last bit of frame building before I get onto other work. Probably getting the roof sorted so it can be made passably weatherproof.

The internal warm room wall is now in place, with a door to get in and a window to give a view into the rest of the observatory from it. I decided to raise the end wall of the warm room by 150mm to give a little more headroom, giving me a fifteen degree slope on the roof. I cut all the rafters for the warm room roof to give a generous overhang and they are also now in place.

At this point either the warm room roof has to go on, in which case I need something to cover it with to stop the weather damaging it or I need to get on with the rolling roof. My feeling is that I’m going to go for the latter, so I’ll start gathering all the necessary bits together.
