Dormers For The Old Girl Part 5

 A picture at the start of the day.

Shingles are installed as far up as we can go.  

The rest of the roof is stripped and so begins work on dormer #2. The roof is pretty steep (8 in 12 pitch) which makes for a good leg workout.

 A large spruce tree was cut down to make way for construction.  It was planted too close to the house and had caused some roof damage which became more apparent when the roof was stripped.

What a mess.

 Hole and rafters cutout.  I will leave out all the "behind the scene" work that we had to do.  Sweaty and tedious....but necessary.

Tarped up for the night.  Another long day for us.  Stay tuned for the walls.
