MIKE: one more thing on my roof ridge: I did it this way because after nailing thru the final top 2 rows, while they were stacked over each other in place, and pre-drilling new holes to go thru 2 slates and still keep them square (which I miraculously did) I thought, NO MORE! I'm just covering the nails on the top row with silicon GLUING A 6" LENGTH OF COPPER ACROSS THE TOP and gluing these ridges in place, side by side with clear silicone on the seams.
Until I opted for that, I WAS going to do the overlapping roof ridge with a nail in each corner of the ridge piece, covered by the next ridge by a 2" and so on, and so on. But, I actually like this look. Hope this helps, Dino

Thanks Ken. It was one of the more satisfying "hard parts" of the contruction project so far. I'm hoping the stone siding will be the same.

Here is a link of the google book page I used to do my ridge. See page 38 for 3 different types of ridges available to do. I used the middle (B) option. Also remember, I glued a 6" piece of copper flashing across the ridge top where my top roof slates met (with more silicon filled in the ridge top gap) so that when I glued my ridge slates on the copper, it could leek and never seep thru the copper ridge (theoretically). The pics below show the copper under the ridge slates and the shiny silicon on the final product that you don't see from down below. Thanks, Dino

Truly amazing work Dino,
I'm jealous of your weather out there. Hopefully I can finish our dome before the hard freeze.
Dave

Dino -- looks great! I'm so inspired by following everyone's threads, but yet I'm struggling with each next step! Last night I was outside until after 10 pm with flood lights and a kerosene heater in my "pizza hut" as the temp loomed near 32 degrees outside... I was inside the hut sweating with only a t-shirt, so I think I should be okay for awhile with the heater. As soon as the snow starts piling up on the tent, I'm going to be done for the season.

So please, not another word about how warm it is out there!

Greg

Dino, nice work. Those of us who followed after you have really benefited from your build -- not just from the fine craftsmanship, but also from the meticulous documentation and pictures. Thanks.

Well Dave, I'm jealous of your dog. He's really cute in you web album. And what a great web-album! You've documented well and used great building practices that I hope others check out and follow.

Greg, I love your "pizza hut" not to mention your commitment to continuing in the cold weather. I now have no excuse this weekend to get out there in the freezing 55 deg morning temps to work on my wfo eaves.

Thanks for the kind words and support Joe and Ian. Cheers!, Dino
