Day 70: Just in case you want to build a roof. . .

That long steel across the front of the building, supported by two uprights, is there because the distance across the new frontage is too long for one timber to span.

And when it comes to the complicated matter of constructing the joists for the ceiling, have a look at the children’s room:

I love the fact that the ceiling will have a slope at the playground end (see bottom left of the picture).  Gordon says the kids won’t notice, and of course they won’t.  But there is something about going into a visually pleasing space that immediately lifts the spirit – whether or not you want to analyse what it is. And my analysis is that this is sheer artistry.

  1. Exciting to see how it is progressing. I sincerely hope the community realise what a wonderful facility they have on their doorstep and that is gets used well and not abused in any way…

  2. I have absolutely no doubt that it is already very much appreciated, Helen – especially as it’s not so much on the doorstep as slap bang in the middle of the Dean Court community . . And of course, we are just so worth it!
