It never rains, but it pours
Instead, we have 2 very large tarps stretched out across a makeshift support and battened down with 2X2 wooden slats. It was quite deliberate (the roof removal that is), so we have no one to blame except ourselves. It was way past its sell by date and it leaked like an Ark full of woodpeckers, so we decided to replace it with a pitched roof.
The tear off went well with lovely sunny weather, but our luck ran out, and the sun has gone. The trusses arrive on Wednesday, so we have a few days to go before something more substantial can go up. Until then, I will be up every night pacing the floor, repairing said tarps and praying to the gods of PVC for a break in the weather.
