A sizzling Saturday saw three keen builders head up to Glentui to tackle the roof. Although it is only a small area to cover it was a bit of a challenge due to the steepness of the roof pitch, only one ladder and the blazing sun.
Some yoga came in handy as one constantly had to climb up and down and in and out of the framework. At times we were holding on to the studs with our wrapped legs whilst leaning out, nails in our mouths, to hammer in far high corners. Some took to the heights naturally whilst others took a bit more time to adjust.
As all the bracing is not yet in, the whole thing sways like a ship at times too- again fun for some. By six o'clock one side was done, and we were too. The thought of a cold beer at the Rangiora pub on the way home had egged us on for the last few hours. We'd sweated enough for today and would come back soon to finish off the back half.
