A short while back we started this project in Middle Rasen which has been running alongside our custom build in Gainsborough.
It just so happens these two projects have arrived at roof stage more or less at the same time, so we feel like we’re roofing specialists now! However, our new-build in Tealby starts in just over a week’s time – it’s going to be nice to be back on terra firma again.
Given the success of the roof panel system we used at Gainsborough, here in Rasen we are using it again. This time however, rather than cladding it with a contemporary finish, you can probably see from the photo we’re using felt, counterbattens and pantiles to give this particular roof a much more traditional appearance.
In other news…
On a slightly different note, from April 1st local authorities are going to be required to keep a register of people looking for self-build plots. So it seems that self-building is finally about to get the support and recognition that it deserves.
