This past weekend provided us time to work on the roof of the shed. We have only a couple of weeks left before my son-in-law has to be out of his apartment and the storage stuff will either be in my hallways in the house – or in the shed!!
The weekend also brought us HEAT and so we chose to work in the morning… avoid the heat in the middle of the day.. and return to work in the evening.
This part of the process, I think, is the most difficult. We had to:
1) haul some heavy lumber up onto the roof area. Luckily Rick was able to climb on the roof of the existing shed, which made it much easier!!
2) figure out the slope of the roof and cut notches in the boards to fit the side walls.
All things went rather smoothly I must say—much better than last time when we were trying to follow “helpful plans”.
We also continued to be blessed with the use of a big nail gun, offered by Rick’s boss. Thank you thank you. Actually, he also offered the use of all the guys working there, if they were needed. How sweet is that!
Anyway, the roof is almost ready for the panels and the shingles. One step closer.
