    For those of you interested in looking at the Marley cladding I thought I'd start a separate thread. Here are some more pic's of the job I have done recently. Hopefully the scaffold will be down tomorrow and I'll add more to this thread, if anyone wants to see more pics.

    Yeah. Basically it was a dormer house prior but with a dull looking flat roof dormer 2/3rds of the way across the house. I removed the existing dormer and re-built the entire first floor frontage with what you see above.
    When the scaffold is down I'll show before and after pics.(y)

    I dont like the windows, but otherwise the carpentry is improving along with the recent brickwork.

    I calculate if that is 9mm timber on the windows that bird would have been flying at 120mph to go through it

    I hope you are replacing the ground floor windows as well so it blends in a bit, I like that cement cladding how did you gauge your plank spacing's?

    Planks are 190mm deep and there is a 30mm overlap, thus leaving 160mm showing. We just cut a piece of batten at 160mm deep and plonked it on the top of the starter plank and drew marks.

    Sounds similar to my approach.
    I did see see some adjustable clamps that were specific to
    this job on a U.S. site that looked perfect but I can't find
    them over here. (n)
