The snow aprons were completed and slate started going on this weekend in Titusville.
Hello all! It’s been a while since I posted. The work on the slate roof project has been pretty redundant so I quit taking video/photos until we get into the slate part, but we did close up the hips on one side this weekend which finally reveals the origami drip edge corner / roof transition.
New blog section: “Shit from r4l”
Work continued in the mist/rain today. I finally got to fold some hips which was really satisfying!
Work continues on the Titusville slate roofing project. Today we finished the second long eave, and moved the rig around to the back for the short side. Tomorrow we get to connect our first hips which is exciting for me! A little bit of hand hammering to remind me what it was like before the wuko and seam closer tools!
We have a new Trad roofing convert. Crookshanks has been known in the slate roofing community for years and now they are going trad! We are thrilled to see Dennis learning seamed roof construction.
Snow aprons and skylight flashing started today on location in Titusville, PA.
Thanks to the staff at Corken Steel for resolving our problems with the order in a timely manner to make sure these materials were onsite for my arrival on Friday!
