Staff training WARM style 6… Professional carpenters please avert your eyes.

I would like a curved shepherd’s hut roof without the curved beams, and I can only use the wood and the Coroline sheeting which I have just bought on the assumption I was going to do a monopitch roof…

I feel like those guys on the Apollo 13 mission who had to fit a square peg in a round hole with just cardboard and duct tape.

But look at the result!  (Unless you are a professional carpenter who is a dab hand at curved beams, in which case please avert your eyes).

“curved” beams…

Roof insulation goes in. The EPS on top of the sheep’s wool is to stop the sheep’s wool blowing around.

Carefully cutting the EPS.

It’s a race against time as the rain starts and the sun sets…

I used regular galvanised screws and washers from e-bay instead of the Coroline fixings that you are supposed to use to get your Coroline warranty. This was partly because the Coroline fixings are nails and I wanted to use screws, and partly because the Coroline fixings are really expensive. The main difference in quality of the caps was the flexibility of the plastic. I’ll just have to wait and see about performance.
