The front gable has an 8 inch overhang. Originally the roofing battens were exposed but now the roof has been felted. I wanted to add some sort of cover under the felt and hit upon the idea of ply secured by strips of wood about the same size as the original battens.
I think it turned out quite nicely.
The plan was originally to sort out the timber frame in the other gable before completing the paint. The new plan is to finish the paint, install the remaining leading, repair the paint, then ruin it all with dust when the timber frame goes in.
The leading was out of schedule partly because I didn’t notice a tiny crack in the original leading until I was just about ready to start painting. It’s on now and just needs rendering in place and the paint touching up.
