Done by me completely, that roof. Again Hans Hagen homes. It is bought by some national builder recently but anyone who worked back than still rememeber me. I do not know why you all sudenlly start talk about me in such disrespectfull way. I said roof is good and is good because I said so. I frame roofs already two decades. Wonder what you would talk if would be other way around If I would post someone else picture from Virginia.

I didn't go by pitch because all 3 sides are old. I throw line and read angle. At top it was around 20 +- 3. At bottom compound cut 9-12 degree with saw at 30. Btw any one can see that plane (triangle) is perfectly flat. What you guys brag about than? Valley is bent just so much how old roofs are bent. Will put 6' level at it, so "small town guy" can shut up once for ever.

Anyone can see that plane is flat. And is flat because I set level over rafters all time when I framed it. End of story.

Did they shingle it or use TPO or brai on it? What is the lowest roof you can put shingles on there? Here it is 16.26

That fully bricked condo was done under supervision. AND THAT MEANS NOT YOUR SUPERVISION.

I don't know WTF to call the stuff you just posted, but I had to look away.

It doesn't even rise to DIY.

I would crawl on my hands and knees daily, through 5 miles of busted glass before I'd resign myself to work on such ghetto crap for a living.

Might as well post a picture of your crack pipe ffs.

Same way as the sleeper floor you did. You have no clue. No clue whatsoever.

No clue, no pride, no nothing.
Show up in columbia heights MN and say me that in face about pride. Drunk clown.

I'm saying it to your face now.

If it was in person, we'd been all done talking after that first knuckleheaded post of yours.

You've been gone a bit. What brand courage you drinking tonite?

I proved my courage when was neded. And I'm not willing talk in that way with nobody. Find some local thugs and solve it with them. Anyone who know me know that I'm a decent person. Only I'm not scared from no one. From Albanian heroin sellers to here gang memebers and drug dealers everyone checked it at his head.
