A busy work weekend at Wild Peak saw the ply sheathing and outer insulation fixed to the roof members. A dry weekend seemed like a miracle as we didn't want to trap moisture between the foil faced insulation and the plywood. The plywood braces the structure and prevents lateral movement, it also provides a strong deck to screw the final roofing material to. On a foggy monday we managed to get the breather membrane over it all, providing enough weatherproofing to keep the roof dry for a couple of months if need be. Final photos showing membrane to follow.
