Bee house roof structure started

The bee house wall frames are in place and secure. Not only did I nail them, which is all that it calls for in the spec, I also bolted the sole plate through into the floor frame and also bolted the corners of the wall frames together. This has made a really strong structure which should withstand any winds. I have the first 4 rafters in place, unfortunately the ridge beam is warped so I am having to make each of the 12 rafters to fit so this is going to be a slow process. Now me and ladders don't mix as I suffer from meniers disease and I can fall off my feet! So the next few work days are going to be my biggest challenge!
