Rafters on the High Side

We've begun putting rafters on the south side, the north ends of which are the highest point of the house. Because of the fluctuations of the upper beam, we sometimes have to take wood out of the rafter, and sometimes out of the beam. Actually, every rafter has a notch in it, just sometimes it's a big one.

Here's Melissa checking the depth of one of the notches in the upper beam.


As we're working away up there, Jack has started to come up on the roof too. Here's the rest of the window frames in the clearstory as well. Note the salvaged/recycled wood used as extra blockers, and for the window frames.
