A Roof with a View

It hasn’t been a great time to be installing a roof with non-stop rain for the last few weeks. But, on a rare day of sunshine yesterday, we ventured up to the roof to see how things are going.

The Copper Bottom roof has a slope of 7 degrees and will be covered in a massive array of 37 solar panels. The original plan was to clad the roof in copper like the rest of the house. But cost, and the fact that the roof will not be visible, encouraged us to think again. We have instead installed a thick waterproof membrane, and the solar panels will sit on top of this.

It really is a Roof with a View

Meanwhile the ears are taking shape, covered in ply and waiting for their copper cladding.
