Yesterday evening I went down to look at the house, expecting to see only more fascia board up and other carpentry completed, but I got a surprise. This is what I saw:
If you look carefully, you'll see brand-new roofing on this end of the garage, in between the construction dumpster and the woodshed, which fortunately survived along with its contents. Today, a lot more roofing went on, and the deck of the shed dormer became a platform for the sawyer to cut edging strips and panel pieces to fit their individual spots.
The end result is a roof that looks nice (as in the view of the soutside below) and a lot like one of asphalt shingles, but it is much more resistant to damage and failure. It should not have to be replaced for many, many years - not by us, anyway!
