    If you have a look at these cheap roof windows from Screwfix https://www.screwfix.com/c/building-doors/roof-windows/cat850314

    They are around £100. all you need is to make a small upstand to fit them to the roof and it will make a huge difference in terms of light and give the feel of a much taller ceiling

    Those Tyrems look good, didn't you mention you'd fitted one a couple months back? How's your aches today?

    I have fitted quite a few of those windows especially the cheaper one which now look like they are discontinued. They aren't supposed to be used for habitable spaces but can't see too many issues. They are incredible value for money and so useful - especially with the weather this weekend to let some extra ventilation in as whenever it is hot we end up with an insulation or boarding job in an attic :rolleyes:

    Just going to post a picture in the other thread about my foot. :D

    Not a chance! I'm going for an EPDM roof and I'd never get it right. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible, to reduce the chance of me screwing it up.

    Here's the finished structure. Now the hard work begins! Still need to insulate, clad and roof it. Then wiring, plastering and anything I realise I've forgotten!

    It's been a while since the last update, mostly due to all the wet weather.

    I have been waiting everything to dry out before getting the EPDM rubber roof up and in place.

    Now I'm going to leave it up there for a few days to let the creases settle out.

    Weighs a bit, doesn’t it mate? :) ;) Hot weathers the best to remove creases.

    Tell me about it! Two of us did it with the help of some blocks and tackle. Hoping the current weather will be enough.

    Getting the creases out is easier if its a pitched roof. I used a wide soft broom to sweep the creases out, but was quite warm at the time. Just make sure, if there's print on the EPDM, that you have the printed side down :eek:

    Thanks, I'm still making some progress.

    The recent **** weather has lead me inside, where I have now insulated 3 of the walls.

    I also recently got the battens on the outsides of the walls and the bottom drip cill of the metal cladding (no photo sorry).

    Sadly I cut through my airline with the tin snips ☺️

    This stopped play on Sunday, but I'll get a replacement this week. I also received my soffits and fascia, once this is sorted I can finish the roof.

    I need some decent dry weather before putting up the metal sheets, as I need to open up the window openings (currently protected by the house wrap) and will need some time to finish the siding before fitting the windows.
