Wallplate fitted, ridge beam fitted (nearly), rafters up, insulation fitted in between. Who's a clever boy then? ?

 

Maybe over-worried about fixing the wall straps  through to the concrete, I chased the Durisol back to the concrete and fitted the wall straps direct to it. This is where we are now (looking up from the floor);

I need to make good on top of the wall straps.

 

Which ?                Foam, Durisol, Sand and Cement? (Can't Avoid.... )

Such progress - must work harder down here, still I suppose we are known up there as 'those soft southern coves'.

Thanks folks.

In the 70s  I had an Army Permanent Staff Instructor ; he regularly growled sweetly into my ear: 

"Lad, you've got two speeds: dead slow and stop"

 

He was right. Then as now, I feel as if I have a concrete block on each foot. But this is a marathon not a sprint.

Well done Ian, remember the hare and the tortoise, plus better to do it slowly and properly, if you rush you make mistakes and these are even harder to put right. From my perspective I wanted to enjoy my build ( which I have mostly) and so must you if possible, oh and yes, foam.

board adhesive - my skimmer seems to use Q a bit of this to create curves etc.  He also adds a bit of cement into it - speeds up drying aparently.

 

Looking good.

Wet board adhesive may promote early corrosion of the metal, even though it's galv. 

Foam for me ;)
