First Roof Purlin

          Today it wasn't 40 degrees for a nice change, so work progressed on the house. First Josh used the angle grinder to cut the roof purlins to length. This meant that sparks were flying but since it rained last night there was a low risk of starting a bushfire - I took down a bucket of water just in case though.

          Meanwhile I assembled the wall frame for the bathroom.

          Then we both took turns to screw the wall frame together. This is the wall which has the bathroom door in it, upside down from this angle

          Then Josh screwed in the first roof purlin. It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but it is the thin blue line which runs all the way along the roof framing.

          Here is the view from underneath.

          Then we went to town and got ice-cream, it seemed like a fair reward! I guess the next step is to continue with the rest of the 24 purlins...
