Minor things

I wish I had this place a little more accessible so that I could do work on it after work hours. But I went up and got the ridge cap on plus did my caulking around seams that might / and did leak. Started to fiddle with the front porch but as yet I need to pick up the sliding glass door so I don't want to get too far ahead with it making it a bitch to get the door in place.

At least I used up the majority of the crappy 2x4's in that porch.

Oh and I got my bird blocks in place. Happy time.

Roofing and stuff

God, I am so my father's child.  Went up over the Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and tried to get my roofing material of choice on.  I am going worth a slate blue metal roof and with the days of time and the end of summer,  needed to get it on before all my hard work was ruined.
But of course I am fully able to screw things up. Something like lapping my tar paper/roofing underlay the wrong way around. Or little things like trying to get flashing sucked in just right.

At the very least I managed to get 90% of the  roofing on before I ran out of screws. I need to go back up, put the last sheet on and then get my ridge cap on. Then I can think of other things like siding and fun topics like that.
