Roofing - Fern BankThis traditional roof completed in 2006/07 consisted of two Green Oak mono-pitch trusses supporting two sets of Green Oak purlins. The roof then continues into a gable extension with the roof supported by a massive A-frame truss (queen post), which you can see below.
This shows the existing house with the wrap around extension ready to have it's roof fitted.
