Making Progress with Our Yellow Cedar Shake Roof

After returning from the 3-day training course in Palm Desert, it was time to see how much progress we had made with the yellow cedar shakes on our gable roof.

The roof looked fantastic!

We should complete installing the shakes by the end of next week.

There are three more rows to complete the North side of the South gable, and then the ridge can be completed with the ridge shakes.
