This was actually last Friday, but I had to cut out this log for the doorway to the bathroom. Only had one shot to get it right and the boss was standing there watching my every move.... Got 'er done though

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


Not sure if this belongs here or the wall of shame.. Started this yesterday, a good interior remodel BUT we have to fix the leaky roof. Roof is 2-12. Talking with the owners daughter we find out it used to have torchdown with the white rocks. At some point the rocks were scraped off and 1/2" osb was nailed down over the torch down(with 16p of course) and 3 tab installed. We think it has been leaking/wicking since new.


Chimmney is failing

Puddle of water between the sheets

Plywood rotted so bad it fell between the trusses on to the insulation.

Getting a dumpster this morning

Put wall lights under the bar and in the retaining wall. They are IL6 incandescent stainless steel. Some are in integrators. Everyone seems happy with the results.

Can you even put 3 tab on anything less than 4:1? (maybe 3:1 but with ice & water beneath rather than tarpaper?)

sorry 3/12 and 4/12

I don't like it much... but I will use three tab on a 3:12. BUT...with #30 felt half lapped and the shingles with a 4" exposure. Done it a few times with no call backs (over the years). I am in Central Texas so we don't have to worry about ice dams.

I always heard no less than 4-12. After looking around a little more yesterday we found out the house has no soffit vents, all the plywood that was falling down on the insulation was moldy on the bottomside. It has been rotting from the inside out and the outside in. Poor roof never had a chance.

Great use of wire for the rolls. Might have to steal that idea!

Wall of shame and man, I'd be afraid to walk up there...guess that's why I do cabinets and not roofs, I guess!
