Not a Moment to Lose... Battle of the Bulge, Ardennes, December 1944

Beautiful work Tim, great story-telling and immaculate finishing as always. My inner architectural critic feels it necessary to point out the lack of transverse timber battens to fix and support the corrugated metal roofing at those lapped joints.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys.

John, thanks for the tip. I did give some thought to that, but I take the view that if you cannot see it then it’s not something worth doing!

Completely agree that unseen details are mostly superfluous, but usually these battens would protrude past the wall to the sheeting edge and would therefore be visible. But it’s your shed and it looks fantastic as it is, and it’s just my pedantic architectural mind that prompted the suggestion. :+1:

That’s a fantastic song! Yes, I know what you mean… a bit creepy isn’t it?
