From Shake to Shingle

The roof is finally done. I did run into a problem with ridge capping. There was just too much variation in thickness and shape to weave the shake edges.... so I cheated. I added a layer of self stick rubber flashing over the ridge, then just butted the edges together. The rubber will shed any water that gets through to the lower roof shingles.

Then I started installing the shingle siding. These are SO much easier to work with!!
