Finally getting around to posting the roof being raised!

The end walls are attached to the roof and run on bronze bushings through a channel cut in the side of the roof cap. This is protected by a strip of rubber gasket (bicycle inner tube).

Wow.. That is nice! Was somebody inside flipping the walls up? Almost seemed automatic?

It appears to me that he must have reached in from the other side. You can see someone stepping down.

Thanks for the replies guys.

The two end walls go up with the roof but the side walls are put up manually from the inside by yours truly!
