Took me a couple of hours to put up the 30 pound roofing paper, and about half a day to do the shingles. I had never done shingles before, so I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take. I used just over three bundles of shingles, plus about a third of a bundle of ridge caps. I used Tamko’s Heritage 30 year architectural shingles – color is Natural Timber. Our house and shed were re-roofed in 2008 with these same shingles, so now every structure in my yard is visually tied together by common shingles.
Roofing paper went up:
This morning we started doing some of the landscaping around the playhouse. We got a good start, but are not completely done yet. My wife also wants to do some sort of finish for the walls inside the playhouse. At a minimum, she wants the whole inside painted white. We may do some sort of panels on the walls instead. I’m debating drywall, 3/8” plywood, melamine plywood, slat boards, etc. If/when I do get something up on the inside, I’ll post pics at the time. But otherwise, I’m considering this blog done. It’s been fun. Until the next project…
