Merry Christmas everyone!

Hello Brian,

And sorry for the late reply but the lead up to Christmas has been a distraction, I have some more photos which I hope to upload over the festive season.

The roof now has rafters and felt with battens and some tiles but that's it for now. I am the only person working on the project at the moment so progress is a little slow but moving forward.

Nice to hear from you.

Mark
