Nita, Thanks for the encouragement. I can only do progress shots right now, the inside is gutted while I make the upgrades. Hopefully it will be somewhat back together by the first day of autumn.

Diamond pattern teak shingle roof. Shingles were milled out of old railroad ties from Indonesia. The onion dome we built on site. Have to take a pattern and steam bend some shingles to the curve to finish it off.

Racing the weather. Check.
I'd like to see the finished product too, that would mean I'm done roofing and can go rock climbing somewhere warm. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anyone I trust enough with 150K worth of teak shingles to help out... So it's just me, Jah, and a 55 year old ski bum with a good eye pecking away at it. You know, working from the wrist down...

F.... Cool man... Looks time consuming setting up the ladders and planks... What's holding the shingles on and what's going on the shingles for waterproofing...? rj

RJ-
A lot of it is lift access, or tibloc/rope. Just the typical bituthene underneath. No stain, they will fade to silver, then grey/green in time. It will eventually match the ledgerstone that will go in. Copper flashing. Stainless fasteners. 60 year life span.

Yeah, 3 to 1 on the power to weight! When you're my age it takes some practice... the teenagers are onto it pretty quickly, though!
