Big All, it's only pegged together , I made the pegs from seasoned oak, octagonal tapered section through Offset holes to pull the joint a tight.

Some. Joints have opened, there are quite few large shakes now , but thats all character and is what's to be expected.

Yes I am chuffed with the end result .it certainly beats the pants off the average UPVC conservatory although it isn't Fensa !!!!!!

Building control officer loved it, and signed it off with not a single negative comment just praise which was nice.

My total all in cost was a tad over £17k and that included the purchase of a chain Mortimer , although I did sell that on afterwards so the effective hire costs for that were £200 , but boy was it worth it, great piece of kit. Maki ta.

Drawbore tenons.

With Green Oak (and drawbore tenons) you're supposed leave the pegs long and drive them home a little after a year or so to tighten everything up, and repeat as necessary.

Ayjay, the pegs were tightened last year , the ones that would, and the ones that show. Generally they all remained very tight still as they should if as I did the originals were made from dry seasoned and octagonal oak. They all show to a greater or lesser extent.

The pegs in the factory produced and developer erected cart lodge we have are all loose and won't tighten , but those are just cylindrical with a grooved surface like a dowel. Most of my pegs,were of sufficient tightness I tapped them in with 7lb hammer. Strangely the only real loose ones are at the centre bottom of the 3 trusses.

I have one pane of glass that now needs refitting , there is a serious amount of movement in that section of frame and the glass edge is nearly appearing in the opening at that point , job for next summer now. It just needs taking out new DPM tape and refitting , it's still the right size or near enough. Will also tidy a few other bits and pieces then to , inside and outside and hopefully that will,be until I am pushing daisies up. Externally there is no applied finish , inside a coat of liquid wax, few water stains on this to take off and another coat of wax .

Clean and oil lead flashing over brickwork, and before any one says it , this does not come into contact with the oak, it has a plastic membrane between the oak and lead , tannin rots lead . The lead is just decorative.

Oh and another thing I did to accommodate shrinkage etc in the oak was with the plastered panels in the roof, these were all plaster board , with angle beads up to the oak and then skimmed, So as things shrunk I didn't get unsightly cracks around the panels , just effectively small flash gaps.

Hi,

You must have been a church builder in an earlier life; wonderful woodwork built to last; well done. :salute:

Kind regards, Col.

Try Mortiser instead of Mortimer.

(although my spell-check would prefer Mortimer apparently) :lol:
