It is looking better each day Randy..It appears to be weathertight with the exception of the gable end.

Randy,

Looking good! How did the interlacing of shingles go?

Tom they are weaving in and out but due having to match up to the old shingles it’s taking double the time it should normally take to lay shingles, we should have been done in a half a day.

Thanks Alan and Grizz, Greg, I’m leaving the top part of the gable end open until I get the ceiling up than I’ll use that opening to put the insulation in, I currently have it tarped.

Enjoying watching your progress. Like Griz, it’s always fun to watch someone else, work.

Randy – you are to be congratulated on your dedication & progress!
Now’s the time to make sure you include anything you will regret later if you don’t do it.

Randy,

Another idea I have had for heat reduction in the shop. Putting in a solar operated vent fan. No electrical cost and managing heat which is a factor in Texas?

Were the old shingles hard to get under?

Blackie,

Your work has confirmed my comment “after some time you will never know its an extension of the original building”

I was looking at the images and saw the headless boy standing on the path, thinking it was some sort of foul play at hand I was thinking of sending the CSU around to pay a visit.

-- Regards Robert

Robert all except the roof bump, shingles mismatch and the different size and variations in the windows. LOL

Low clouds and mist is the best time for doing shingles. Sure beats 100 degree+ and sun!

Not on this roof Macatlin, I don’t recall what the pitch was but it’s steep and with the mist made it slick also today it’s pouring rain so doesn’t look like it’s getting finished today either.

Hey I dont see the second mandatory exit to comply with the building code!

Or is it at the back near that mysterious rectangular item you have on a post next to the rubbermaid shed (tee hee)

Better power up the jig saw !!
