Because of the rafters, I needed more than sixteen feet of roof. To be precise, as seen above, I needed sixteen feet & 20.5 inches of roof, so that’s what I cut.
That piece went on the back section of the roof, & the rest of that sheet of plywood went along the side, which is enough to cover nearly the entire roof.
There’s just a bit of a gap left in the middle. I’ve got enough thin plywood to cover that up, but that’s got to wait a while, because right now, that’s the only way I can safely get on & off the roof.
I had to go round to the other side & screw down the bottom edge of that board, as before. Tom helped.
Or maybe he just wanted a Love.
Of course nothing quite fits like it’s supposed to — that’s how the world works, & also, I can’t cut a straight line — so this needed to be trimmed down before I could fasten the roof at that corner.
That’s okay, to misquote Grimjack. I’ve got another saw.
Did I mention I can’t cut a straight line? Cos I can’t cut a straight line. This is lined up.
This is, also, why I’m glad I bought three rolls of Tyvek tape. I was gonna be taping all of the gaps between boards anyway.
The view from inside. Roof!
With bonus skylight!
Next up, I’ll be coming up with a way to fasten down the bit where the plywood overlaps, taping up the rest of the gaps, & covering the entire roof with housewrap. Then, napping.
This was posted originally to, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is tofor as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
