The roof was one of the largest (and most expensive thus far) tasks of the cabin. First we had to deal with those beams which turned out to be a huge headache and frame the roof…twice. Then we had to paint 32 panels of siding for the underside in the hot sun and then haul them over to the site. Next was to tar paper the whole roof and put up the purlins.
It was finally at this point that we could order and get started on the actual metal galvalume roofing. We chose a red color and I think it turned out beautifully.
There is still a little gutter work that needs to be done, but overall the roof is finished. We finally have a dry, shady place for all the tools and materials (and people). And just in time too. We had gone about 3 weeks with no rain while we were in the process of the roof and then, the rains came. Britton happened to be in the cabin alone after the roof was finished as a major rainstorm started and he said it was wonderful! Secluded, rainy, jungle green outside but nice and dry inside. Just how you would want a roof to be!
