We've got the corner posts up and glued in place, tomorrow we will try and get the cant rails up and fixed, and if the roll of roof material shows up tomorrow, we may get the roof on over the weekend.

No pictures, will get some tomorrow.

Update pictures, it was on and off rain today, as you can see from the pictures, but we got the cant rails cut and ready to glue. Boys are in tomorrow, hope to get them in place.

If the roof bars are ready, we'll start the roof on Sunday.

Early start, Robert came up to help with getting the cant rails glued on. All the the major panels are held on with Sikaflex.

Took a couple of hours to check the fit of the sections and corners, then a real wrist-numbing session with the applicator gun and finally got them up and in place.

Last thing to do was to strap them down while the Sikaflex cures overnight.

Roof bars are cut, floor planks for the ramp are also cut, many thanks to our friends at G Caswell Engineering who have been helpful beyond measure.

Roofing material sitting there ready for the big day!

More work on the trailer, many thanks to Rob who came up to lend a hand today. The twelve top-hat section roof support bars are all in place, marked out this morning, then drilled and bolted.

Second picture is the slowly increasing pile of off-cuts of extrusion as we make our way through the build.

Gorgeous day after a very wet night.

Birds-eye view.



Bit wet today, so we didn't get much done outside, but lots of bits to do inside.

We are going to insulate the roof with 25mm Kingspan (Foamed insulation board)

More work on the trailer, weather was cr*p on the weekend but we are still getting on with it.

Ceiling inner panels are cut and laid in place, blue is the protective film which is peeled off once we are happy with it all.

The two main windows are in, the side and front reflectors are fitted and the side raves are all in place.
