So we are up to wall plate level now and ready to start preparing to frame the roof out for the side extension. Here we will have established the existing wall plate levels to the house and transferred these levels across to the new extension brickwork. From here we can now start to build our triangular framework in preparation to receive our rafters and new hips ETC.
The rafters will be coated with a breathable membrane before we apply any new roof covering. For this project we aim to retain all the character of the existing house and as we are stripping the entire roof, we will salvage what welsh slate we can and re-use. Time consuming but well worth it for the end product that we will achieve.
