13th day: Thursday/Friday, 07/08 Oct: Putting together the roof - part 4 (4 hours)

This was not very nice - I had to nail the roof plates onto the structure. 1. - I hate nailing - much prefer screws. 2. - I'm afraid of heights - but had to work on top of a 2 m ladder which wasn't standing very stable. In the end I managed, but I am not very happy with the result. Many nails were not set straight, some are still missing and I have to find somebody without fear of heights to put them in.

The first roof plate is in place. The first plates were nailed down fairly easily, I set up the ladder inside the hut.

Me on the ladder, looking down. Here I had the ladder outside the hut on the back side where it goes down to the canal. That was scary.
