      You can sort of see the Roof Trusses in this picture - they are right under the roof with a brace piece directed underneath.

      The wood stack up is the floor that is due to go down this weekend, just waiting for all the sawdust on the floor to soak up the few weeks worth of rain that made its in before the building was up.

        Probably the reason used GC2's are so hard to come by in the UK :-)

        I have contacted foresight about certified used and they are currently wanting £5200 plus VAT for the unit they have available

          Do you have any friends / family in the US? I had my friend hand carry a brand new GC2 back for me a couple of years ago - and it was less than £4k. Was nearly £7k new here at the time!
          He took me home an HMT at the end of last year for under £4k too - although that was pre-owned and with the current rancid exchange rate!!

            I dont have any friends in the US as such, but work for a US company and speak to US colleague pretty frequently, problem would be getting it home as our current cost controls restrict travel to an absolute minimum although I am on holiday in California in July but would prefer something before then. Hope you dont mind me asking but did you buy it direct from Foresight in the US. I would imagine it would require purchasing with a US credit card. If I dont get sorted before July I would consider buying in the US although logistics could be a problem due to the fact we are moving around so much whilst there.

              My GC2 was bought from par2pro, which involves my friend having to buy it with a US card due to their selling regulations. It had to be shipped to his US address too.
              I bought FSX and my HMT direct from Foresight using my UK credit card. No issues at all. I use a Halifax Clarity card - which doesn’t charge a fee for currency conversion.
              Both of my items were hand carried to save them getting bounced about in the hold. He simply put them in a laptop bag!

              Will certainly look into buying in the US. Even foresight certified used work out a lot cheaper in the US

            Hi All in the UK who are looking at indoor projects.

              Yes, you cannot do much with that Martin. I see that they are a little "scissored" so that helps a little bit.

              Your weather is similar to ours in Oregon. We have a rare dry spell going on right now though. Love it!

                Made some good progress this weekend.

                The wooden floor has been laid with Jablite Polystrene insulation (25mm thick) stuffed in between the bearers.

                https://www.jablite.co.uk/application/jabfloor/

                Forgot to take any photos of that being done. Cost was £52 for 10 8ft x 4ft sheets and used 9 full sheets with a load of off-cuts.

                Got the hitting wall and the 1st third of each side wall covered in a breathable membrane from Superfoil

                https://www.superfoil.co.uk/reflective-membrane/

                Have installed a 12mm batten to staple the membrane to, this leaves a little air gap.

                Cost was £150 for 75m x 1.5m tall roll. Used almost a full roll so far.

                Next up on the back wall halfway up and the 2 sidewalls was 50mm thick rockwool insulation

                http://www.rockwool.co.uk/products/rockwool-flexi/

                This was around £15 a bag, and i've used 1.5 bags so far - each sheet is 1200mm x 600mm x 50mm - so fits perfectly between most uprights.

                Final bit of progress was to board that rockwool in - using 9mm thick shuttering ply, as its fairly thick but not too costly - £17 per sheet for 8ft x 4ft. Used 4 sheets so far.

                Think the photos are at all angles because of using an iPhone.

                Hopefully going to get the rest of the battening and the breather membrane up this week
