The Shingles are nearly done




Here is a picture of the shingles in their almost finished state.

If you notice they are not really straight all the time.... a bit messy... I plan to age them too...... Don't want them to look all fancy and neat.... this is a cottage folks, not a mansion.

So here is the current state.... I plan to finish the roof, do the antiquing and then start adding trim this afternoon.

This has been the slowest part of the job so far. All the little fussy cuts and trying to make it look a little messy.... not that easy actually.
