Roof Decking Installed

Rained hard most of the day today but I managed to get a few hrs. in and finish the roof decking, between downpours. For this roof  I used 5/8" T & G OSB less durable than the plywood I used on the porch, but it will be less exposed, with the house and garage on either side. Oh yes, it's $14 a sheet cheaper to. lol.

I have some work left to do before I can do the shingles, box in part of the house end gable, install drip edge and some flashing and a few other little things. Monday is a holiday here so I'll probably do the shingles Tue. and Wed. Here are a few pictures.

Roof Framed and Decked

So went at it hard this morning and completed the roof framing. Went smoothly, my miter saw made quick work of the rafter angles. Installed the roof decking this afternoon, No skimping here, I went with 5/8" T&G exterior grade plywood. All was surprisingly square, Cut one sheet in half for the offset and the rest all fit tightly into place without any adjustments. Here are some pictures.

Got to run into town for some trim tomorrow, so I'll do the shingles Wednesday.
