Almost. . .

Today the balance of the materials for our main frames arrived.
 We had pre-assembled the pitched sections of the roof and the legs needed to be added.
One section was assembled and checked for squareness and used as a template for following frames.
With crane in position, the first lift begins.
Frame #2
Frame #3
 Then we moved to the other end of the house to install the portal frames for the sliding doors and the kitchen window.

It was then that we discovered that the bracket posts that fit into the tops of these portals were 100mm too long. 
Bugga everything comes to a halt until these are replaced.
