The roof is on!
It's starting to come together now. The roof I chose for this project is corrugated iron. This might seem strange as many people would use felt, but the brief was to have the building as maintenance free as possible. Corrugated iron has a long maintenance free life. I chose the green to blend it in to the background and gave it a good overhang so that guttering etc was not needed.
Corrugated iron is also Considered a traditional roofing in this area, where It has been used extensively since the industrial revolution. I think it also gives a "shepherd hut" feel to this building.
