A roof for Mia's oven

My friend Mia has been wrapping a blue tarp around her earthen oven between uses for months, and it was finally time to put up a proper roof! Luckily, it was built right between the end of a fence and a random post, so I didn't even have to spend the time to set new posts in the ground.

I screwed in some bracing between the existing posts:

Built the basic gable on the ground:

Lifted it up:

And then installed purlins and metal roofing (and some extra roundwood bracing for stiffness):
