Rafters fixed to the south slope.  A lot of discussion about the roof projection at each end.

Just before lunch rafters had been fixed on the south roof slope.  I went off to collect sample of larch boarding from Mr Merle in La Coquille.

By 4 pm most of the rafters had been fixed and were being trimmed at the ends of the tie beams (entraits).

In the afternoon it began to cloud over, but good weather is forecast for tomorrow. I hope Mr Mazieres can get the ecran de toiture and battens on before it rains again.

On Tuesdy afternoon the roof tiles arrived. Mr Mazieres and his men could not come and I was working on site marking out floor joist positions and trying to decide whether fixing the joists was a job I could do to save money.  But the joists are so heavy that I decided to leave to him and his men.
