New Back Porch
« on: April 01, 2016, 07:50:47 PM »
No big deal for most working Forum members, but it is for me, since I could hardly walk six months ago.  Nancy has been after me to rebuild the back porch roof because the 5 V metal roof has rusted and leaking after 30 years. The carpenter bees have weakened all the purlins and rafters.  With the help of couple of friends, we ripped off the old roof and the photo shows new columns, beam and rafters we set before the storms came through last night.  Next will be to sheet the top with one by's and shingle.

Dont attribute irritating behavior to malevolence when mere stupidity will suffice as an explanation.

The top was sheeted with 1 by 14's, 12's and 10's from a nice pine log I got in January.  The last shingles were tacked down only a few hours before the recent storms rolled in.  And I decided to let the big oak remain and built around it.  I like my shade even though it makes a mess in the winter.
