The Scoutpost Has a New Roof!

On Saturday, May 20th, Twelve hard-working volunteers braved the scorching sun and put a new roof on the Scoutpost!   The completed the job started by our Roof Prep Volunteer Team the week prior.  

A VERY special thanks to  Sam Shearer from ABC Supply Company, who donated ALL of our roofing materials.

 Repaired and completely re-nailed decking (to code)... new trim... vents... quality above-code underlayment, and beautiful long-life dimensional shingles.   We are GOOD TO GO!

On Your Mark,

 

Get Set...

 

GO!

Two teams formed, and a day long race began to see who could get to the top first.

 Starter Shingles were place, lines were popped (well, mostly), shingles trimmed in, nailed down, boots were installed, and finally the ridge vent was installed.    Mark Cherry, aka, "The Nailing Maniac" on the right.  Jason Walton on the left.

Break Time

It was a fight to get the teams off of the roof (especially the winning team), but hoagies for lunch did the trick.

Thanks to Marie Higbie for bringing us Homemade Cookies!

 In the end... both teams joined together to finish the job.   Just a few more nails and the job was complete.
