Common rafters need fixing down onto the main structural timbers, ridge, purlin and wallplate to prevent your roof from blowing off during the next autumn gale.

In days of yore this might have been accomplished by driving in square wooden pegs to hold them in place. Today, however, we thump in 6″ nails which seems to do the trick, as conveniently the rafters are only 3″ thick when laid on the flat.
