its 3p and it has ice and water shield which is required here.
so its good.
he said to extend half the shingle past the transition and after i do the lower he will torch it over .
any other suggestions?

No, I have never built one or even seen one that's why I asked. That torch over sounds good, heck I thought it could get a flashing there

That sounds hunky dorky to me but hey he's payin you I'd run a 2X6 around it so it looks finished and then but the j to that. Flash and hang the shingle over the 2X6. Some times as a FramingPro you must let him know how it's done so he comes out look good

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


So today I went and worked for the same trim contractor and one other guy and tossed this kitchen in before lunch. This one was the prototype to see how it would go with 64 more to go. This trim guy is very good at production trim and cabinet work. I am very happy to be working with him on this type of work. I hope to increase my knowledge of this type of production work

I agree 100%. you need something to butt the J to.

Maybe it's just me but I've never seen or heard of starting a roof anywhere but at the bottom. without flashing or at least having the lower shingles wrap over the transition, you will have very little protection by just having the tabs torched down (maybe I don't understand what you guys have in mind though)

Agreed. It's highly unlikely that the lines are going to land perfectly for a good look at that transition point. Start at the bottom, Nick.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


He mention a ice and water shield What's that the peel and stick? So yes I vote to water barrier the gable then the 2X6 barge boards then the flashing all the way around then the peel and stick on top, now this thing is not only dry but waterproofed Now the shingles go on for the 2nd layer for water defense
That looks funn kinda like working on a wall and a roof at the same time

That's great for the upper section. But what happens if the shingle spacing on the lower section lands you at the transition with half a shingle height to go?

But hey, if the guy has done it before and he wants you to do it that way, he's the boss.

Started demo this week. I'm working with my brother in law...we'll be metal framing next. The new exterior walls furring will be 3/4" rigid insulation on the block with a 1-5/8" stud partition in front of it. Lots of runs to the scrap yard in the next few days.

Yea the thin stone veneer from EarthCoverings,pre-cast sills from IXL, stucco Imasco 6p Crystal White; finish is called "Italian Trowel".

Similar to "English Trowel" just in English Trowel you generally go in one direction with 6x6 float,while in Italian Trowel any Philly Brick Trowel will do

Thanks a lot for compliment anyway

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


i started at 11 today after my math exam...schools done.
1 more year
got both sides on top done in under 6 hours, 4 sqaures. not bad.
i like archis, there easy to keep aligned horizontally and if you are off vertically no body will notice.
gonna go back tonite and paper the steep parts so i can just bang bang shingles tomorrow.
it was a hot one, i think it got up to 44 degrees, so hot that my shoes melted, the soles are seperate from the bottom now
GAF elk lifetime shingle.
1 question. It says 6" then 11" then 17" cut off
is that measure from the rake, and you put the cut end at the rake or on the field end?
i just cut it off the rake and put the cut end out, hook blades make it real easy. stairstepping is so amazingly efficient i must say
