Playhouse North Roof (2012-011)
I continued where I left off last weekend and installed (only) two more panels on the north side of the roof. The first panel took way longer than I expected because one of the neighboring dormer roof panels interfered and I had to cut the panel in-situ. It would have been too much trouble to remove, trim, and reinstall that panel. Then I started installing one of the smaller panels along the bottom of the roof. You would think the smaller panels would be easier to install, but it's even more difficult. Because the smaller panel sit at a steeper 60 degree angle, I have to constantly hold the panel up as I stand on my ladder and get my drill into position to drive the first screw in. Also, the north side of the play house is very close to a lot of little scrubs and a lemon bush that force me to position my ladder at a dangerously steep angle. Thankfully I haven't fallen of my ladder so far!
