Teams Work!

You may consider this a very boring picture of a roof; it's actually close cut, mitred unequal pitch valley with offset gauge and unequal code 3 soakers. Confused (possibly,) bored (probably) but trust me this valley is a testament to teamwork and only a handful of keen observers will ever recognise it, but it is also a piece of craftsmanship of the highest order. The roof to the left is a new extension, the right side the original building. The architect designed the buildings meeting at an angle and the roof pitches were not the same. Joining two roofs together like this is very unusual and highly difficult when the pitch is steep. It was so complicated that our highly experienced roofer, our contracts manager and then even me, could only come up with ideas that we all considered would look a bit unflattering. The response? We called in the big guns, drafted Malcolm out of retirement and used his thirty odd years experience to help solve the conundrum. The result? A thirty minute conflab on the scaffold and a design so good, even the building inspector thought it was a work of art. Thanks Dad, couldn't have done it without you.
