Roof Construction-July 7-11

The roof for the cocina is in the midst of construction. As you can see from the photos below the rafters are being installed-- 20 3 x 6 16ft redwood rafters. Photo #3 shows the rafters and how they are connected to the brackets which are welded to the steel plate. The steel plate is anchored to the stainless steel rods in the adobe walls.

Next week construction of the main roof will begin. All the old sheathing and roofing will be torn off by the end of the week and installation of the new rafters will begin. Check back for progress on the roof next week!-JK
