Capel Build Part 4 – Cutting the roof timbers

In Part 3 we saw Robin getting the timbers together, in this next instalment we see him get stuck into the post and beam construction.

Robin discusses some of the challenges asociated with cutting roof timbersĀ  for a timber frame home and shares some useful tips for making the job easier.

“It’s a little bit fiddly when you’re marking out rafters on your own, but it’s all about technique,” explains Robin.

For example Robin has two circular saws so he doesn’t have to constantly walk back and forwards with one.

We love watching a craftsman at work and the gale force winds didn’t stop Robin working or us following him for the day. We hope you enjoy this update on The Capel Build.
