I have had a stressful weekend at the cabin, because I had to remove, raise and replace the veranda roof before we travelled home on Sunday evening.
My first task was to remove the corrugated tin, which I had to do carefully because it needed to go back on the roof once all work was completed.
And then remove the roof joists
I had to cut the new roof joists to the right length and fix them in the right positions with 60cms between each one. Once all the joists were in position I had to cover the roof with a water tight membrane and then fix laths on top.
Here are the new roof joists which are much ticker than the previous ones and so much stronger.
My final task was to put the corrugated tin back on the roof and screw them in place.
Sebastian helped with some of the work and was a great help. He also cooked bannock breads as a snack for us!
Emma helped me fix up a double level nest box for Lapland Swifts (which next in holes in trees) which we are trying to encourage to nest at the cabin.
