|Waiting to be unwrapped for a days work|
Report for today is that all plywood has been attached to the roof so things are looking pretty solid! On the backside I sawed the roof so it tapers in from the top and there is little overhang at the bottom. Just an odd aesthetic thing I went with.
Here I am at the top looking down as I fasten the ply to the ridge beam. Try not to get vertigo LOL
After all that I spent the next day looking at roofing options. Metal barn roofing seems like an obvious choice but there is a newer product that appeals to me; Ondura.
I think cutting the vinyl-like Ondura will be better than snipping or sawing metal. The tapered roofline on the back would make for 14 noisy feet of sawing on metal and it would leave the edge to fix up some way so sharp edges wont cut people or snag things.
One additional benefit is that Ondura comes in six foot lengths so it will be easy to carry to the site and it won't bend leaving creases like tin does. Cost-wise it came in a few cents cheaper per square foot than metal roofing.
Also picked up were spray foam insulation and 30 weight roof felt.
