    Well, here we go! Just a neighbor and I starting on this roof project . Yesterday was day 1 and it took hrs to get that a/c off of the roof. Gasket must have sealed good! After removal we were pleasantly surprised to see the wood framework is perfect.
    We're thinking that the back half of the roof is fine. We'll see.
    Took the hard walls down and that's all we had time for. One came down and smashed my finger. (It's ok )
    Next week will be warmer.
    I will post pics as we move along.

    Whats the plan for the roof? I see the side boards need rebuilding are you planning on rebuilding the entire roof or just the sides and then sealing and coating the roof m

    Definitely new sideboard. I think after we take those off we're going to start peeling off the roof covering from front to back and see how far the wood underneath is bad. This is a first time learning experience for both of us.

    So, this board that flips down before pulling bunk out is starting to rot. Only about an inch. Trying to decide what to do. I'd like to replace the whole board to make it right. How to get the skin off without damage is my concern.

    Got the trim off gently with putty knife and hammer. It's rotten on the bottom too. So, gonna replace board. Hope that I can get the skin off intact. 20180219_165339.jpg
