Roofing Friday and Saturday
With the plywood roof complete, Gordon was done for the day. I received a detailed set of instructions on how to complete the roof. He demonstrated the layout, cutting of shingles, starter shingles and safety.
Friday morning I began laying out the shingles, and this was hard work. Very scary too! That close to the roofs edge, and so far to fall… I took my time.
I had my own compressor, and the roofing nail gun from Gordon, but no circus acts here. I needed to stay sharp and concentrate on nailing the asphalt shingles.
I was hopeful that I could complete the one side of the roof on Friday, and yet only was able to lay half of the roof. Saturday I completed the balance, leaving a small section at the top for later.
Monday will find me back at the beach cabin to work on the roof. I hope to have the whole roof layed by Wednesday August 1st.
