Topping-out party

The building of the roof of the tearoom was getting very wearing, but then I got sudden help from Bob the Builder!

It was very nice of him to come to help me. Just think how many times I would have needed to climb those ladders with a pile of roof tiles if I would have been alone.

The tiles were waiting on the deck. First the straight tiles were laid on the laths using hot glue.

Then was the turn of the arched tiles, those were glued with super glue.

The last arched tiles needed to be formed a bit before baking so they would lay more flat and the arched tiles that came to the top egdes would sit nicer. Also it was possible to see inside to the arched tiles from the lower egde and I wanted to cover them up, so I made cones that I then pushed inside the first arhed tile.

Then suddenly the roof was all done.

Then we had a topping-out party with Bob, we had worked so hard. Bob brought some flowers and we had some wine on the deck to celebrate the finished roof.
