I wish you speedy recovery.

The DVD by DaveR is great, I go back to it on a regular basis. I bought it as a download which means no waiting for the postal service and no import duty

That arrow reminds me of my mate's when he had his op on his left leg. He got his wife to write in indelible ink on the right leg...'Not this one, the OTHER One'.

It is scary though. When I had my second cataract operation (right eye this time) just before I went into theatre I went through the formal consent process with one of the nurses. "OK...let's see..you're down for a cataract operation on your left eye". :o

Oh yes, I had big arrows on my leg when they were operating to stabilise the lose bit of bone which I'd broken of the tibia.

Not working in the NHS thats for sure! Excellent people.

SWMBO has had 20 significant operations on toes, ankles knees, fingers wrists shoulder and eyes each time they have added the arrows and about half the time (I think) deliberately run through the consent form saying the wrong side. I think is is an attempt at humour and making sure the patient is paying attention.
Her last job was to fuse the top 5 section of her spine. That had no left-right ambiguity and so the only job so far not to get arrows.
I keep telling here she is worth her weight in scrap titanium but she just gives me strange looks :lol:

Thanks I am pretty sure my right hand must be into double figures for surgery over the years and although my life changing accident occurred during surgery. Causing some legal issues which took 5 years to sort I bear them no ill will. I have done some work with this hospital in recent years.

Hey look what showed up today.

Image2018-12-01_03-14-36 by my0771, on Flickr

At least once I am ready my hands will be warm and dry. My stitches are due out in 10 days the surgeon told me I could take them out myself and he added a blue stitch at the end of his modified blanket stitch. So I would know which one to cut if they were causing me irritation.
That's why he wears one of my hand made leather belts :D

Hope the healing process goes well.

I’ve got three permanent markers - tiny tattoos used as aiming points for radiotherapy.
For my major surgery I was marked all over my thighs and stomach by the plastic surgeon indicating possible donor locations.

Rod my surgery is quite minor compared to yours.
The big dressing was causing some issues with my arm today so I removed it the small opsite dressing had curled up inside so I replaced that.
Both sides of the wound are together and all looks really well I have more movement than I have had for many years.

Nice to hear it’s healing well.

My big op wasn’t entirely successful so I’m down for a much smaller one - only 2 to 3hrs this time. The last one took 23hrs.

Thankfully I am not in that league, I was in and out of theatre within an hour. I hope your upcoming surgery goes well.

I am trying to get my head around what is required for a double apex roof I am in the process of re reading threads to gather as much information as possible.
I have made a rough drawing to assist with ordering I think it will be the new year before I place my timber order now. But this should allow me enough time to get my planning right before I start.

Image2018-12-06_02-22-56 by my0771, on Flickr

I will work out the detail of the roof as my plans progress my aim being to get as much headroom as possible but have a finished product that looks good.
I did manage to get two trenches dug and filled with stone before the heavy rain and my surgery interrupted.
Any input appreciated.

Normally such a roof would have joists at wall plate level or partway up pitched rafters and a ridge board.
However with such a very low pitch you might get away with overlapping rafter pairs alone bolted is several place where they meet?

Thanks Bob.
I think I understand that rather than having joists running from wall to wall. Each rafter would go from the wall plate on one side and be bolted to its pair from the wall on the other side.
I plan to use OSB3 11 mm inside and 18 mm under the EDPM.

Yes that is what I'm visualising.

Scaling off your drawing it looks like the rafters are inclined by 50-75mm along their length of about 1.3-1.4 m
Putting in a rafter as well would likely mean the top of the rafter would be height than the rafter.
Drawing out a detail section should show the problem.

Several bolts per rafter pair with serrated lock washers in between the rafters should be plenty strong enough and the decking and ceiling OSB should hold the rafter pairs at the rigth spacing making the ridge board redundant.
I'd only suggest this for such a low pitch which gives lots of overlap area in combination with such short rafters for your 2.4 m width.

Hi Sam I have replied.

Thanks Bob
I am sorry I am not sure that I understand do you mean the joist would be redundant as it would take the same space as the rafter. Or am I on the wrong track all together.
I may have to make the rafters longer as I have not allowed for the air gap and outer feather edge boards so to get a 150 mm overhang.
Thanks
Michael

I think you have the right idea. Drawing it out will show it .
Only the rafter length from apex to wall plate is relevant to the strength. Any overhang is just "hanging" there. :D
