Comment: The two carpenters working on the fascia of the roof light projection.
A palette of tiles is lifted by the 'Merlo' .

The South West side tiled except for the last row by Monday afternoon, after several heavy showers of rain, through which they worked steadily occasionally taking shelter under the roof light.

The next morning was very misty to begin, and the North East side was tiled,  with interruptions when it rained too heavily to continue. The tilers throwing tiles to each other.

As a result of a slight misunderstanding, the Douglas Fir ceiling joists which were to be exposed under the ceiling, were delivered not planed, so I offered to plane them all using Mr Mazieres large electric Makita hand plane.

Wednesday morning saw the completion of the main roof tiling.
