Building workshop – framing the dormer windows

July 10, 2017

Summer. Sun. Sisu.

Finnish Sisu* is what it seems to take to build the mansard-style roof with 6 dormer windows. After another weekend, I  only managed to complete on roof of a dormer window to make that side of the roof weather-proof. 5 dormer windows still to go. And I have attached only the minimum underlay. The tar shingles and all decorative plates and boards are still missing. Well, I did also some other stuff this weekend, not to mention that I completed the last bit of the roof that remained undone last weekend.

The dormer windows are very much constructed from scratch from long boards. On the photo below you can see the basic frame that is all cut to measure and screwed in place.

to be continued in two weeks…
