Wrapping Up the Roof

Adding the Sheathing to the Roof

Starting to Look Like a House!
Front Peaks Added. Now you can really see a house!

Back of House. We have a Chimney!

The main roof is pretty much complete with all of the sheathing on and the front peaks added. You can see the difference that the peaks make to the roof line. They break up the long slope and add definition. A window will be added to the large peak on what would have been the second floor. But of course there won’t be a second floor so it’s really for design purposes only.

A chimney has also been added to the back roof. This is only an encasement for the vent pipe from the fireplace and depending where it is placed, the furnace. As it will be low heat, brick isn’t necessary.
