« Part 9: Progress Update December 22 Part 10 of A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion series Part 11: Getting Back To It. »

Christmas Eve made a run to HD and picked up a bundle of shingles,drip-edging, and some
roofing nails.
Got the roofing paper on and edge drips. Need to redo the gable drip-edge.
Got in a big hurry and it looks all dented and crappy. Think I have a spare section
I can redo that . No big deal really.
This morning I went out and put on shingles. Thought I had enough as I bought a bundle and had a partial bundle
left over from the original shed build from a few years back.
No dice though. Ran out with half one side not shingled and everythings closed.

Disappointing, as the weather which has been in the mid 30’s,
is going to get wintry nasty. Should’nt take long to finish shingling.
Just have about 4 or 5 courses and
the peak left to do.

Just didn’t want to climb back up there with snow. Suppose to get our first heavy snowfall tomorrow
evening I think.

Well, I tarped it over and just going to relax and enjoy Christmas day. Not far off from phase II of
the shop expansion.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Thanks NormG. Yeah, should be able to get the siding and trim as weather allows
and can start concentrating on the inside and get out of the cold !

allways encouraging
to hear of shop expansions

mine has been on hold for over a year now
but have the means now
to make a 12’ tall corner section of walls
and build an 8’ spray booth with temp tin lean-to roof

so i have a place to finish some hopefully
for sale tables i want to make
so i can afford the remainder of the shop
some time in my lifetime

hope you are warm and dry soon
