Dismantling the smallest flat roof

We removed the temporary deck and the box gutter from around the smallest flat roof area. We can now get in there and replace the roof decking and put some kind of roof back on. We put some captions on some of the pictures to explain what you are seeing. Hope it helps. =)

    Is this the last really big gaping hole in all of the different roof sections? (my old brain can’t keep up)

      Yes, this is the last “big” roof section that needs the decking replaced. We are weeks away from having this thing dry. Might even make it before the one year anniversary of owning it. =)

    Have you considered redesigning/engineering that part of the roof so it doesn’t have a flat roof?
    From your pictures, (and I’m probably wrong) it looks like you could extend the valley by adding another plane of rafters and decking and not have a flat roof.

      Yes, we did consider that. We would have to redesign the way the box gutter and crown molding worked in that area. We plan on putting all the box gutters and crown molding metal back just the way it was. With minor maintenance, this area should last another 100 years even with the small flat roof.

      By the way, that was a very astute and thought provoking observation. We are always surprised when we find out that people are paying very close attention to what is going on. Keep it up. =)

    You all are so good with the illustrations and videos. Someday someone is going to tell their kids you were their inspiration.

      To be honest… we are mostly doing it for ourselves. This is kind of our electronic diary. =)
