Postby trudy » Sat Aug 23, 2008 11:11 am

the wooden frame is in place and corrigated clear roofing is also in place.
a window is fitted,wall struts in place.

Hi Trudy,

In my head I'd got you as a brunette (joking)

Start a bottom and over lap at least 11/2" or 40mm. An extra precaution I might do would be line the frame out with sarcin felt (roofing felt) horizontally overlapped starting at bottom.
