ETA fully dried in? Getting close?


Donna-ski and I have discovered that everything is a little bit heavier and moves a little bit slower than 10 years ago. The only exception to this is my perception of ability. Being weekend warriors only delays my perception of ability even more.
Oh yeah; and let's not forget Mother Nature.
A couple more weekends to finish sheathing and underlayment = dried in. Installing the metal roof is the next mid-life challenge.

I can relate to the "moving slower than 10 years ago".

There is a lot of difference between being 54 and 64 in the ability to keep moving. Stuff I used to do easily just poops me out any more.

When we installed the underlayment on the steep roof section at the opposite side, Dski and I did it with 2 ladders, leap-frogging each other every 6 feet or so, over the 52' roof length. It was awkward, cumbersome, and tiring. Moreover, I want to try and keep Dski off the ladders as much as I can; just cuz.
So....
I got's me a 10 ft length of 2" PVC pipe, a 10 ft length of slotted angle iron, a 4 ft piece of 3/4" PVC pipe + 2"-to-3/4" bushing, and cut a 10" dia wooden wheel.

The slotted angle iron slips up inside the 2" PVC pipe, so it is "adjustable in height". We slip a 1/4" x 4" bolt thru the holes at the correct height to keep the PVC pipe supported. The 3/4" x 48" PVC mast is inside the roll of the underlayment. The 10" wooden wheel at the bottom of the underlayment roll is self-explanatory. Donna-ski was in charge of "unrolling".

So, we are down to one big ol' sunroof

Just like the other roof sections; with ladders, muscle, and about 14 sheets of plywood.

It took quite a few weekends, but the metal roof is on. This is a huge monkey off'a my back. We can proceed into winter with a real roof. Since we work on weekends, it can be a crap shoot to coordinate with Mother Nature when I want reasonable weather. Then, because the pond region is very high humidity, it takes until about 11:00 am before the frost or dew is dry so I can safely negotiate the roof. With the shorter days, that then leaves about 5 good hours of productivity...providing the weather holds. There was one weekend with gusts that nearly blew me off the ladder more than once. I had to hook my hands under an adjacent roof panel to hold on. We just put on the ridge cap today, finishing about 6 hours before the winter storm front was due in. Yeah, timing is everything.

MAKING RUBE GOLDBERG PROUD[size:20pt][/size]
I did my level best to keep Donna-ski off the ladders. This created a conundrum when moving metal from the ground up to the top 2 planes of the roof. I used some scrap lumber and spent about $15 in cheap boards and a pulley and some clothes line to create a trolley lift. Pool noodles cut to length and zip tied keep it off the painted finish. It was used to move some 88 pcs of roofing and trim up to the top. See my above post for a pic of it staged.

Use that to access the roof before the morning frost melts and it'll have an additional meaning.
