    Astrokev's ROR - The Build

    I was thinking similar thoughts as cold water dripped down my neck whilst doing some cladding. It was a way further down the list, but might just jump up in priority

    Dry inside too! I was so chuffed this morning when I went to check it

    50/50 Roll off build

    Yesterday I thought it might get blown or washed away! My Dad has volunteered to carry on whilst I’m at work this week

    Now the roof is coated, the rails needed to go back on for a final fix. This is where we found out just how hard it is to dead lift to rolling roof! Rails fixed, over centre catches added and a bit of a tidy Cladding begins on Sunday, if the forecast is to be believed

    This is a handy calculator for the size of cable you'll need: https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Technical/Charts/VoltageDrop.html

    To get around your land hazards, you could run SWA above ground, so long as it is either UV stable or in suitable protection.

    Even with land drains, its not fantastically well drained - A dusting of tops soil over boulder clay. The curse of the new(ish) build!. It has had above and beyond the level of traffic it might cope with. I'll be making a path and step, and the rest will bounce back I'm sure

    Status update: the roof is waterproofed, although not in its finished state. It needs a top coat to smooth it over, but it’s not idea at this time of year, so it’s a job for next year now. The rails need to go back on once the coating has cured (next weekend) So, with the roof pretty much ticked off, I’ve put up the membrane ready for cladding. Daylight photos! (Yes, it’s a swamp!)

    JamesF's observatory build

    If it helps, I found an 800 x 800mm unused unit on eBay : £1.30! It didn’t seem an uncommon thing

    First day of liquid coating onto the rolling roof, so of course we have torrential rain tonight. Still, it is moisture cured Pics when there’s daylight

    Looks amazing! The plate over the lock is called an ‘anti thrust plate’ if you want to look them up
