Installing the Roof and Liner, insulation and the exterior cladding .
The first job was to put up the inner liner, this is a steel corrugated sheet painted white which will form the inner side of the roof. This went up over 2 days on the main curved section of the roof. The Lean to roof was a composite sandwich of liner insulation and exterior corrugated roof, which you can see has already been installed in this photo.
This is a view of the white liner from the ground floor. The galvanized purl-ins will be etched in acid and painted white to match the main white beams.

This shot shows a metal roof cladding, we have tried to keep as close as possible to the original black bitumen corrugated roofing of the old Dutch barn.
