2016-Jun-4 - Wooroloo - Loft Floor Joists #43
Long weekend - Western Australia Foundation Day holiday.

I had hoped that with an extra day up my sleeve I could install the entire hall way front to back.

On Saturday I was out on site at 6.30 and took about an hour to install and hoist the "new" tarpaulin (second hand one I bought from Ross - much fewer holes than present one).

I unloaded and placed 15 prepared purlins off the back of the utility - carefully placing the 2.0 mm thick ones in the best positions.

I had to spend about 2 hours working out where to place purlins between the two wet areas.

Then the rest of the day was spent on the quick installations - ie bracket already attached to purlins - just have to bolt the bracket on to the top plate.


Today I moved on to installing the tricky purlins between the wet areas - I arrived on site at 10.00 am and stopped work at 5.00 pm. It took me all day to install just 4.

I think I am through the worst of them now - hopefully next weekend I can finish off the entire run.

Hall completed to date
