Dormers For The Old Girl Part 4

Hi there. Wow, what a journey.  We are officially halfway there.  Well, almost.  If you missed Dormers For The Old Girl Part 3 CLICK HERE.
 Nothing says it better than pictures.

 Finished building the jack rafters and starting with the sheathing.

I can't believe how un-steep that roof looks in this picture.  My legs would sure beg to differ.

I feel like a peeping Tom.
Things are getting closed up now.

 Sheathing completed.  Outside truss (ladder truss) and fascia board done.
 A few shingles up.

Another view.
Dormer One is complete to the stage of shingles.   It's already starting to look like a new roof.   These twelve hour days are tough on my body, so my hat goes off to the real framers who do this day in and day out.
 Now to start dormer number two!

  1. How exciting for you! Dormers add so much character and personality to a home! :) How about gray siding? Or just all white...?

  2. We put Hardie Board Lap siding on our house & we love it. It came primed & we replaced 4 big windows so we had a lot of painting to do. But now that it is all done it looks great.
