Yeah...I'll lay down some 'celotex' before the EPDM. Not gonna happen this year though....winter and all. It's tarped until the weather warms up.

They had it all along....lol. I assumed celotex/fiberboard was an engineered product specifically designed for roofing applications.....a little more 'hardy' than the our donnacona.

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


I figured you would find it. If they sell epdm, they sell the fiberboard. Glad you're going with it. I've seen it done, glued directly to the sheeting, but not by anyone who actually does roofs.

Look at the installation instructions for the epdm. There is a specific pattern for the fasteners, for the fiberboard. It doesn't take too many. Need to screw it down and use the 3" deck plates.

For your pipe flashing, just use a standard epdm flashing. They use a stainless steel worm clamp to hold to the pipe. No sealant needed.

For the perimeter, I realize you are going for a particular look. If it were my roofing project, I would run the epdm over, on to the fascia, screw on the termination bar, run a bead of lap sealant on the top edge, and be done.
Of course I get the impression you don't want the look of that edge.

The design is great. I really like the look.

Actually..... it was the local building supply company that had the donnacona in stock, the roofing supply company had no clue...lol At 20 bucks a sheet......another 400+ bucks....ouch. If I knew the cost of the tape the covers the drip edge...I probably would of gone that route you suggested........$900 for two 100 ft rolls. Thing is....I need just over 100ft....lol On a good note....the snow has arrived. I can now remove the spark arrester I made for the stove pipe, being only 1/8 inch mesh it would plug up in less than 3 days. Note- I added another 2ft section of pipe after pic was taken.

Thanks.....well I'm gonna go with a monochromatic theme. I'm having about 85' of false (perimeter of ceiling) beams milled in the next few days....either fir or pine which will be stained dark in color, then some poly added. The ceiling will be gyprocked/painted then finished with 1 1/2" x 1/2" x 11' stained slats/trim, either at 16" or 32" centers to accentuate the 'movement' of the ceiling. White laminate in kitchen with doors and drawers banded with dark stained birch. Lots of smaller windows. On demand propane hot water (installed). 100 amp elec panel (installed). Grey vinyl barn board flooring from Home Depot.....very nice stuff. Lots of wood trim and utility art....which I sell. Will be designing an entry door similar to this one that was in a cabin that I built and just sold....
