A two hundred-year old roof, Lake District, UK. Nothing much to say - sometimes you are presented with the facts. How complicated can a simple roof be?
Main structure of king-post trusses and tie beams. Plaster and lath ceiling.
View of window head structure from above: four four inch deep timber lintels side by side with slates above (‘through slates’) to tie the wall together.
