Micro Home Roof Rafter Installation by Walt Barrett

Please click on images to enlarge.

Well it was another terrible rainy day, but we managed to work between the down pours. We should have all the rafters screwed in place and aligned by the end of the day tomorrow. If they look a little funny in the photos it's because every thing is temporarily tacked down so we can make the final adjustments tomorrow. We are using metal hold down clips at both ends of each rafter. Nobody likes a roof shaped like an airplane propeller!

We are very pleased with the huge amount of space we gained by using the gambrel roof. It's a great place to sleep, and also has the height to hang clothes.

Stay tuned,
