Made some good progress again today, out on the balcony in the nice sunny weather. Installed the clips that will lock down the top frame and also the back frame when the observatory is closed. Also constructed the backframe and installed the rain gutter and drainpipe for the observatory and also a reroute from our drainpipe for the appartment roof that would empty on the balcony, which now follows a gutter to the drainpipe for the balcony itself. So most of the roof water will not have to pass beneath the obeservatory now. Still I will put up a damp barrier under the floor which I have to install over the coming days, to prevent moisture from entering the structure from below.
