(In case you’re wondering – we haven’t made Part One yet (the main house build) – but that’s on its way…) It’s been ten years since we designed and built our house, so it seems appropriate to start an occasional series about it all. Building your own house has to be one of the most exhilarating and exciting things anyone can do in their lives. (It’s also expensive, exhausting and stressful too, but we wont go there for now…) We weren’t filming anything back then, but we have a few (hundred) photos which we hope you’ll find helpful. This one is about the design of the roof – there’s much more we can say about it, but that will have to wait. There was a leak along one edge recently – which we fixed easily. Perhaps we should put up a video about that? Apart from that – the roof has performed better than we had hoped. Our house isn’t perfect – we made it ourselves. but it’s a great house and we love it. We built all the parts in advance in the workshop (with a small crew) and then friends and family turned up and worked incredibly hard to assemble it. Most of it was put together in two weeks. It was a good time and we will always be so grateful to those who helped. (Already one has left us forever – Pam. It was a privilege to know her and count her as a friend.)
