Pool House Expansion Project, Day Forty-Six 26/11/15

It's an Elegant Solution.

Day Forty-Six, 26 November, 2015

As the guys were installing the zinc roofing, we had most if not all of the gap-oh-sis taken care of as far as the flat sheets. Where we had a question was with the roof ridge cap. Well, I found the answer to that question on YouTube (natch). Here's the link to a really elegant solution:

Although they cut the flat pieces of the ridge-cap at a 45-degree angle, I don't think you need to do that. Just cut it straight but about an inch-and-a-half in from the edge, leaving the curved part as in the video. Then trim and bend it the way they do in the video and install as you would normally. Problem solved.

More later. They're working on plastering, textures, and coloring the mortar.\

There's many more photos than appear in each posting. You can see all the photos of the construction project on Flickr at: https://www.flickr.com/gp/winjama/0wVc3s. There will be new photos added each day of the project.

  1. Looking good Dave...

    By the way... do let me know how the "squatty" works as I am mighty curious. Funny, right after you sent out the info I saw an add on a news site for the things. Anyway, can't wait to hear the "results", or rather the quality of the results...

Unfortunately, adding an image to your comment can't be done directly. The only way you can do it is to include the URL of the image from a hosing server, which means that first, you must upload your image to Flickr, Dropbox, or some other image hosting server.
Not very good, but that's all that is available right now.
