Thought the rafters were done

Of course, there's a bunch of other details that go into the rafters besides just getting them all up there.
Here you can see the 'laddering' that holds the outside 'barge boards', the last rafter that 'floats' out on the edge.
Here are blockers at the high side, holding the rafters straight and vertical.

The ends had to be cut plumb, before we put the 'fascia' board on.

and then the blockers in the middle. The little strings are marking which spaces will have skylights, which will be a different sort of blocker.
