Kevin,

I think your new gables will have better proportions; less pointy than the old ones.

That book should be a goody. The senior author has published many articles over the decades. His structure articles several decades ago in RMC were some of the best at the time. I imagine they still hold up.

Kevin, are you left-handed by any chance? A friend of mine is left-handed and whenever he takes a picture with his iPhone he presses the button with the left and the pictures come out upside down. Just wondering.

Why do you keep your spray paints and tacky spray glue upside-down.

frank,
at one point i was having issues with floquil spray paint nozzles clogging, and i contacted them (this was several years ago) and they suggested storing the cans upside down so I;ve been doing it ever since.

trial and error is a good tool, but it's time consuming as hell.

i've decided that this is the final configuration. the roof substructure is just sitting there because i still have quite a few steps to go before it's time to secure it. first thing i gotta do is change out the fourth balcony post for a longer one. at least now i can start figuring out the rest of the roofs.




and here's a shot with an 18" straight edge from the veranda gable peak to the ridge on the north south roof. that's an acceptable tolerance i think. i'm going with it.




thoughts, comments?

thanks bob. yeah, the lighting where the mdel is sitting right now (cuz it won't fit on the workbench) is horrible.
