As we can see the existing roof has been half stripped of before the gable end wall looked seriously dodgy and also had to be taken down and replaced by 6×2 stud work.

The trusses as we can see are huge and the top hats needed to be nailed on before erecting as we can see there are also alot of loose timbers for the infills, dormers and joisting.

We can now see the trusses erected with spaces for the velux on the back of the property and the gable wall rebuilt in studwork to take the gable ladder and to create the end wall.
