Dormers For The Old Girl Part 8

Welcome fellow bloggers.  If you are just joining the transformation you can click here for part 7.
  When I last left you, we had just completed the fascia board.  We have been going steady with not many breaks.  The weather is supposed to turn to rain and cold soon.  We have been working like dogs to get her shingled and water tight as tarps just aren't an option anymore.

 Sheathing is on the roof and drip edge and tar paper is applied to dormer

 As you can see our vent stack is in the wrong place.  We had to move it and patch the hole.  A bit of a delay.  Hubby moved it and I kept shingling.

 Day 2 of shingling, threatened rain.  We had made the choice to continue as it sprinkled.  I am glad for this as that's all that happened, a few sprinkles.  We laid the last shingle at 8:30 PM.   Still have to apply ridge cap to old house and dormers. 

 Hubby came up with the idea of building a protective ladder like thingy.  It saves walking on the shingles and held  tools and the shingles while we were roofing.  Now it is going to be used to install our fascia and soffit.  Works great.  It braces up against our safety boards

Scaffold is repositioned and dormer number one is wrapped in Tyvek.    We are preparing our corners of the fascia board  in order to install our aluminum fascia and soffit.
Well that's part 8.  To view part 9 CLICK HERE
