Raising the roof

Managed to get a weekend at the cabin last weekend.  I spent some time fishing but didn’t get a single bite, and I did some work on the boat.

As you can see in this picture, the left side of the boat house has sunk down; probably due to the weight of snow that lays on it during the winter.

Using a bottle jack, I have lifted up the roof now and placed a 4″ x 4″ post under a rafter to support the roof.  This is only a short term remedy as I never have to time these days to do a proper repair, but I am confident it will be good enough for another winter.

The leaves on the trees have changed colour and are dropping and the temperature is dropping below freezing at night.  Some people have seen some fantastic displays of northern Lights during the last couple of weeks, but unfortunately I have missed them!
