    This is brilliant. I'm doing the same in terms of a self build extension and i'm almost at the same stage. Well just about to start the roof and i've not put the steels in yet apart from over the bifold doors. Glad i'm not the only one tacjling such a mamouth task alone!

    Good luck. We had to put the steels in first as they are part of the roof of the extension to give us a single height ceiling from old to new.

    I've gone for a lean to roof so steels are more for opening up rear of house and dropping a kitchen wall. I need to get roof on, bi folds in so when i open back of house up we're not exposed to the elements - in November!

    I'll have to get some pics up soon.

    Amazing work there and props for taking a project like that on yourself!.

    I keep eyeing up building out of the back of our house but it wouldn't be me doing it unfortunately.

    Looks excellent so far, will be nice when you get the roof finished!.
