Roof Saga

Standard

Sticking to the long haul

The fiddly bits

Removable section and centre back

I know, tiling is tiling is tiling after-all … but have come to a bit with a little more interest to it.  Where the large Red Bed room meets the bed itself is still entirely removable but shares a roof slope with the fixed bits.  The majority belongs with the bedroom but a tidgy bit is left attached to the main body.

As usual, click on a photo and it should open into its gallery or a larger view.

Reminder of the bedroom section, here viewed from the wrong end as it is moved away from the body of the attic, trailing its wiring tail.

Meanwhile the movable bit needs a good edge to meet the flat roofed, bed section and I’ve decided to try a piece of poster hanger plastic.

The best news about the poster hanger is that so far the paint hasn’t chipped off or taken a scratch.

Movable section re-parked and tiling commenced. Tried to make sure the lowest tier had plenty of cardboard to stick to whilst overlapping the plastic ‘lead’.  The bedroom was backed off whilst gluing took place in case I managed to stick the two sections together!

Roof slopes becoming interesting

Layers and angles – no ridges yet

Here we have paper lead running down the side of the change in roof, thin card lead on the flat roof and plastic lead on the edge of the movable bedroom

Trying to achieve some alignment between the parts of the slope even though the join won’t be very good.

Diving in to work out the next slopes and will post again when re-emerge.

Keep well and busy (but not too busy 😉
