Also the builder collected fibre glass coated board for part of the flat roof that will eventually be over new utility room and new bathroom.

Day 39 – Monday 5th September 2016

Today the roofer returned and completed the valleys on the hips of the roof. Also the fascia board was completed.  The builder added vents to allow air into the roof space and any water vapour to escape.  We are not allowed to have breathable membrane on the roof as it may harm any potential bat visitors.
