I'm hoping to get the roof on over Christmas. Hopefully by the end of next week should be getting to roof height.

I have all the safety bits and thick plastic to remove the existing asbestos sheet roof. Then need to knock through to the existing garage and change the levels so the back wall is not sloping down.

Rubber roof and fitting kit came and have a new lintel for the main garage door. Going to replace the up over door with an insulated roller jobbie :)

Side wall up to final height. Just have the blocks to finish off for piers.

This weekend should get the remaining walls done with lintels :D

Managed to get the back wall up this morning before the heavy down pours. The weather has been a bit hit and miss the last few weeks. Next week should see the lintels put up for the door and window and completion of that section. Bricks are starting to run low but enough to complete the new section and hopefully enough for the original garage.

The plan between Christmas and new year is to get the wall plates on, joist hangers, joists and OSB board on the new section of the garage. Knock through the wall to join old and new and then put all my gear and the Golf in the new section.

Then if we have any spare time and the weather is kind take the old roof down and start to build up the levels to match the new bit. I have a new lintel for the main garage door as the old one looks a bit dodgy :lol:Anyway pics of work:
