Cedar Roof

Last week, the cedar roof was complete and it looks great.  We had a few hiccups along the way but we now have the four skylights and the ridge vent installed along with some good looking shingles.  They will fade to their permanent grey colour within about one year. 

Bundles of shingles arrive.
