We have finally finished all the roofs here at The Courtyard. That makes eleven roofs in all, I do feel a bit out of breath.
The latest roof is a bit of a show piece for Charlie’s carpentry business. He has used green oak, using traditional methods in a mix of English and French styles. Oak for the English bit king post truss joinery for the French bit. All joints have been fixed using hand crafted oak dowels.
It has been a joy to do as large oak projects are few and far between nowadays due to the expensive materials so this roof is a complete self-indulgence!
