PROBLEM: It's sunday and the forecast shows rain for tonight.

I am making an addition to my home and am doing all the work myself. The roof hasn't been finished yet and I need to go up there and cover it with plastic. This requires light hammering and about 1 hour of work.

Can I work on sunday in this manner to protect my home from rain? The addition isn't complete which would allow the rain to pour into my house.

The reason I ask is that construction is not allowed on sundays. Does this count as construction?

There are usually exceptions for emergency repairs and if you are only up there for an hour you should be done before anyone gets annoyed.
