Roof ridge finishing
Today, I went to mom's to do my taxes; she's an accountant. I will be getting a nice refund again this year. :D Last year, I bought myself a beautiful ring...this year, I'll be buying a dishwasher. Haaaaaaaaaaa!
With the roof shingles applied and painted, the only thing left was to finish the roof ridges. I thought about doing lapped shingles but didn't like the way it looked on the dormer when I tried it. It doesn't look terrible here in this photo, but there were a lot of gaps on the top and it just looked off.
I decided to go with 1/4" corner trim from Manchester Woodworks, which is also an easier solution. I used the scroll saw to make the cuts....it's a wonderful machine!
I used old Dura-Craft strip wood to enclose the flat roof portion. I didn't trim around the bottom edge, because I didn't like the way it looked.
I painted the new pieces to match the roof.
It already looks more finished, but once the moss is on it will blend better. :]
Good choice with the corner trim. I think it finishes the roof off really well =0)
What are we going to do when it's finished?
