Temporary roof for log cabin observatory

The storm on Sunday night blew off a large patch of the roofing felt on my log cabin observatory in Lichfield. I am very grateful to the help of Damian and Rhys last night, as we struggled against the wind to put a temporary covering over the cabin. This involved cutting down a tarpaulin from Screwfix to appropriate size in the dark and wobbling about on a step-ladder as we tacked it on. We discovered that the underside was a better colour so we installed it upside-down!

Now I need to buy some proper roofing felt and do it properly……

NB Double doors are to allow the 16″ Dobsonian on its castors to be rolled out onto the lawn.
