Today we had a really successful day on the roof. All the preparation yesterday paid off as the slates went on really quickly with Hans and Clive working together nailing them all on. Only two more lines of felt (2m) left to get to the ridge. In the afternoon the boys were fairly autonomous and Breezy and I had time to start sorting materials out and the site for the party on Saturday. A stash of scaffold went in Clive’s van before leaving so that we don’t spend a day at the end repatriating equipment to their homes.
