Just thought I would share a part of what my life is like. Doing big houses like this really gives a feeling of accomplishment.

So...you added a floor to the house and I wondering if you do that kind of work for a living? In any case, impressive. How long did it take? And...that is a last picture is of you, right?
Hats off to ya, my first and only framing roof job was on about a 40 degree roof ... 10 pitch (had to re-look it up). This was 3 stories. The main guy I equated to a monkey, he was hanging over the edges with a circular saw cutting dove tails and what ever ... I was asked to stay on the ground because I couldn't move my 6" per second unless I had toe boards and was flat on my stomach (which made bringing boards hard to the guys that were fearless) Smile. Never heard from them again, humph.

I have shingled, but only on 1 story homes after this framing experience. You guys rock.
Cool post! More of us should make posts like this.
That is some serious labor there is all I have to say. Is work still a 4 letter word? Smile
Oh...meabigdummy...you roofed those houses! I get it now...that's hard work and I know you have earned every dime! Impressive!
OldeWolfe you silly goose lol.

Yes I am a roofer, I've been doing it for 13 years.

And yes that is me in the last picture with my proper Canadian headgear. Well call them tuque's.

This house has a 10/12 pitch, that is a 39.81 degree angle, they don't get much steeper than that in my part of the world.
Yeah It is cool to see what people do in RL and what they look like. Nice job on those roofs!
