REPLACE THE FLAT ROOF WITH A GABLE ROOF
Above is the finished project with both exterior and interior views.
Below are the rear and side view, showing the portion of the home, with a roof which was almost completely flat. By the time we were invited to visit, the attractive beams inside had water damage and could not be repaired.
We built a temporary laundry room, removed the old attached laundry area, created a foundation for the new laundry and prepared for the big day. On the big day we cut up the old roof, lifted the pieces off with a crane, and set the new roof trusses. After that it was just a regular remodeling job for us: build the roof tie-in, install the plywood, roof the house, followed by plumbing, electrical, brick, drywall, etc.
Now it looks like it should, it looks like it was always there and the Owner’s worry about a leaky flat roof is just a memory.
