03 Aug Trussed roof with cut valleys in Elkstone, Cotswolds.
This roof was completed in the picturesque village of Elkstone in the Cotswolds. The trusses were ordered through Genesis Timber engineering (GTE) my company of choice for roof trusses and engineered timber. This roof is cut into the existing roof not with trusses but with 6×2 timbers to create cripple jack rafters. There are no fascia’s or soffits to go on this roof so we had to cut ply wood over the rafter ends to close off the eves of the roof and then the ends of the rafters are to be painted.
