Fun in Bellvue, Idaho

This wonderful job was located in Bellvue, Idaho; two hours from home base. My partner who happens to be a finish carpenter, helped me roof this house and he learned a lot while doing a good job. We installed two rows of Grace Ice and Water Shield from the bottom and also in the valleys. We had three crickets, one of which wasn't big enough to even show. We used ice and water to dry in all the crickets and then had to do it again because the individuals who loaded the roof wore cleats and compromised our work. My vehicle broke down on the way there to tell them where to put everything. Per contractor recommendations we installed IKO 30 year shingles with vented ridge. The total square feet of the roof was 61 squares. This was a building plan from southern California that had to be converted to Idaho standards. The plan we looked at in March was not what we walked into in November/December. I came across something I have never seen or dealt with before and finally figured out how to do it at a great mexican restaurant called La Azul. Highly recommend if you're in the area. My partner thought I was crazy because I was talking to myself(thinking aloud). There was five different roofs coming to one point and the end of the valley diminished to an inch at the top, which happened to be a wall. I roofed the valley on the left first and stopped short of the peak 5 rows. Then I roofed the cricket and the right side of the roof and stopped short 5 rows. when I got to the transition spot I roofed from left to right and installed the left side, then the valley cut, and then I roofed the rest of the cricket like you would a hip. I'm not going to lie I am proud of this one. I am also proud of my partner for not having a heart attack on this icy roof while he was watching me be somewhat acrobatic. Not totally graceful on this one. Any ways the contractor and the customers were very pleased with the results and the framers thought we were nuts. Which we are.
