Living and Building a home in the heart of France
21st July 2005
Now the inside of the house has been cleared of builders' junk, the space looks huge. Their last task was to fix the first 2 trusses to their gable blockwork.
Two chaps arrived and started to put up the roof trusses.
The trusses span the studio and garage at one end, and the bedrooms etc. at the other end of the house.
The middle part is left open to the sky for now - this will be our 'grand volume' (cathedral ceiling).
By the end of the day the bones of the roof are in.
