I've never seen an obsy put together so quickly, and I am not talking about the time lapse, I mean this seems to have got this far in two days.

Hey Carole,

when i started last year with the concrete work and preparing the walls i had a small gap in my agenda, so i only had a few days then.

Next week is an Easter week-off in construction nationally, so i'm using this to work for myself.

I did quite some preparing for this week to maximize efficiency so i hope to amaze you once again ? 

will post time-lapse..

progress of today, we have put the walls in place and started with the roof beams.

 

The black brick is Faomglass to eliminate a cold bridge (i know its a wood construction) but mainly i placed it to have a nice flat level surface to start on.

IMG_7256.thumb.JPG.0e3a458bcee068e40fbbf18f249743e4.JPG

This is the telescope part with the sliding roof, its 3,7 meters x 2,5 meters inside measurements

IMG_7257.thumb.JPG.5f0d4e315d771d5486ab26147992a55b.JPG

This is the garden shed/warm control room, this part is 5,08 meters x 3,7 meters, the part were the 4 walls are placed together is the carport section, this is 6 meters x 3,7 meters.

This outside part under the roof is where i'll hang the bikes

IMG_7262.thumb.JPG.0aaa234a85e2aeb1a65349a53eb884d5.JPG

 

Looking from the "control" room to the cold room, this wall has a door on the left big window where the desk will be, and under the desk a hatch to get to the crawl space because the floor in the cold room will be raised aprox 0,5  meter

IMG_7263.thumb.JPG.535385d87cb794f667a89fc59951fe73.JPG

 

I will make a time lapse at the end.

That is one hell of a project you have going on there Miguel!

Why the RSJ along one side of the car port section?

Hi,

i assume by RSJ you mean the wall ?

This wall is on the plot boundry, so i made it a closed wall.

Progress of today :

 

Roof covering started (EPDM rubber Resitrix by IRS )

This is something that i have outsourced 

IMG_7266.thumb.JPG.f73c6cebe6b8a570b0e4390d7eef817b.JPG

 

And i made the roll-off roof...

IMG_7269.thumb.JPG.d316d9186d206a0ce02549c793d28177.JPG

And placed it

IMG_7271.thumb.JPG.5da38790a29cb552c6085edf2781625c.JPG

The sides will be finished tomorrow

IMG_7272.thumb.JPG.47e5e92e65873a963d94664569a539af.JPG

 

There is a 25mm gap, tomorrow brushes will be placed in front of that gap and a wood panel and then the roof cover

IMG_7275.thumb.JPG.7ccae782143da39caa3ebae4b72660f2.JPG

My design worked out well, the action on the roof is feathertouch !

While i was busy with the the roll off roof, my son and brother in law placed the vapor barrier

ah OK

So to answer the question, that side of the carport is open so that the wall we're looking at from the house is less massive, so it's pure visual, also, it would be more like a garage instead of a carport.

very nice work! How are you preventing your roll off roof from becoming a fly off roof?

I will put some kind of clamping system on the inside, nothing concrete yet, i have to think about that but i don't expect to have a problem with that.

Thanks Gina,

Having seen you latest batch of images, it makes sense now Miguel- Structural steel to take the roof weight without intermediate supports.

Once your structure is clad, it could be 'Mini Me' of Kielder Observatory!

Day 4:

Insulation placed in the walls by my wife and son

IMG_7283.thumb.JPG.d0117c3a215793f10795ecfe3539beec.JPG

I placed the brushes to make the sliding roof closed to wind

IMG_7287.thumb.JPG.310566cb0c451b70bf44b8fa207b8276.JPG

This is the back side of the roll off roof, the wood panel acts as a stopper

IMG_7292.thumb.JPG.d68196c4bcdaca3b5c88b3818d515b9c.JPG

Wood panels are placed all around now, the roll off roof is ready for roof covering (Saturday)

Note : the roof slides not as good as yesterday's video shows because of the brushes, still it's manageable with one hand.
