Day 10 Grassing up the roof
The structure of the roof now complete we fitted the roof light and facias. Then after sweeping the roof clean we covered it with old carpets from skips outside carpet stores (they are really happy to give it away). We then carefully laid out the Butyl Pond Liner and covered it with more carpet and underlay (to protect the liner and act as sponge to hold water).
We then had to start lugging up the turfs dug from the front garden and laying them out. hard work but fun. They do seem very heavy so I was interested to see how the beams were coping but so far they have not moved at all which was a relief.
Still a few more carpets to get so that we can complete the whole roof.
