Run down garage
« on: February 09, 2020, 11:37:17 AM »
Here's a cool old, emphasis on old, garage.  The roof originally had wood shakes.  That's why the roof deck is made out of 1x4s, spaced 4" m/l apart.  The roof was recovered by 3 tab asphalt shingles that didn't stand the test of time.  Then of course, there is the tar paper brick patterned material covering the original wood.  This material really didn't like sharp corners.

Unfortunately, I didn't take any other photos as I was only interested in this corner detail.

Super cool. I love how the roofing is just all shattered and crumbled.
