Step 9. Finishing the roof

Now fix the roof boards to the other side of the roof.

So to re-cap...

1). Fix the roof boards to one side of the roof only (see step 8).
2). Insert the middle rafters (see step 8).
3). Fix the roof boards to the other side.

Step 10. Adding the ladder

Bolt the ladder upright in place and then the ladder rungs.

Refer to the 'rear elevation plan', and the 'left-side elevation plan' for dimensions.
The final diagonal brace can now be nailed in place.

Step 11. Finishing the side walls

Fix the 150mm x 25mm x 900mm long (1" x 6" x 36" long ) vertical wall cladding boards to the two sides.
Fix longer boards to each side of the plywood climbing wall.
Ensure that the top of the side cladding is the same height as that of the cladding on the rear wall.
