Timber wise it's all systems go now for the roof framing, but...one thing always leads to another!
.
Before I can get under way with it, the temporary roofing has to come off and the scaffolding raised up another level.
.
Before I can get underway with that, the sealing of the limestone needs to be finished!
.
Before I could get underway with that,  the cleaning and sanding of it had to be finished. Fortunately now, that was knocked over this morning.
.
To prevent the sealer, the first coat which is 'flood coated' on, from running all over the bluestone, I improvised this method of keeping it contained, using thin ply and strips of sponge.  It's not totally foolproof, but the odd dribble is easily removed with a blast of compressed air. Leaving the joints raked out, with the tuckpointing to be done later, has helped with this considerably.
