DIY ROOF: RAFTER'S BIRD MOUTHS

DIY ROOF: RAFTER'S BIRD MOUTHS

Possibly the most satisfiying part of the roof yet.... installing the rafters. Due to the width of the roof, we had to use 2 rafters rather than 1. Bottom rafter needed Bird's Mouths cut so as to rest on the wall plate installed way back when. As long as you keep the depth and angle roughly the same throughout, it's fairly simple. Once nailed to the wall plate, we cut off the ugly feet. Once started, these when up really quickly, mostly down to a lot of measuring in earlier stages.
