So tired but there is progress. Fresh pictures hot of the press. Almost half the roof panels are up. First impressions are good. Today in the sun roof hot to touch but beautiful and cool underneath.

I haven't been this excited about pictures since I found my dad's playboy magazine at 9 yrs old.thanks

I am still around. The 8 meter wide folding doors are installed and look magnificent. The whole house is to be proud of. Still building it as we save money. No I am not on the Dole and nobody is givi

I'm almost afraid to ask. How far OFF from the right color were they? I mean, are we talking shades? Or, are we talking black and white? :D

Nice pictures - I prefer green roofs myself.

 

Out of interest - what's the difference between this method of insulating and insulating over the ceiling or parallel to the roof with a gap etc... and why did you choose this option?

From my experience this insulation method works much better.

 

The reason i choce this method is because i wanted an exposed ceiling. This way it is insulated and it has a nice ceiling as part of the deal. 

This material has a high strength also. At 4.5 meters it can suppotr the average person.

The roof will not need any purlins they will be screwed to a central truss and to steel that is bolted to the outer beams.

Where did you get this material and what was the cost? Is there a web site we can go to look at this product? 

 

I assume this is a metal product????

Its available from Union Galvasteel.

Roof space is 88 square meters and this cost about P160,000.

I ordered with 0.6mm steel both sides but other materials can be ordered also even a paper underside.

The front roof truss is taking shape.

No drawing just made the design up in my mind.

I need to do a bit more welding then a coat of paint.

Not a lot yet been busy organizing other parts of the house. Trying to organize gutters, flashing and ridge capping today.

Easier installing gutters before roof panels. Finished the main central truss/beam yesterday but only have pic of it part finished. It is 11 meters long when finished. End next week should see roof finished.

Also thought a couple of pics of our hollow block production would be appreciated.
