As you can see, the native cypress weatherboard is finally in place on the western wall. A ribbon of ‘sisalation’, where the purlins lie, will be protected by an 8″x 1 1/2″ barge plank, which defines the edge of the roof.

Tomorrow should be fine, so I will give the weatherboard a coat of plant-based oil. The cypress will eventually turn a gentle grey colour; the oil is meant to provide nourishment – not delay the ‘greying’ process.

Next job: the southern wall frames
