Wow it's been some time since I posted.
But with my fingers being numb!!
I have my surgery on the 23 of August. Thank God.


This is my first time with metal roof panels so comments are welcomed.
Don't worry I have thick skin so please offer suggestions! ;)

For a first effort, I think those panels look great!

One way of avoiding any similarity between the panels is to divide them into three (or more) separate batches. One receives a heavy paint treatment, medium and light... and so on.

Still, I think you've done well as the roof doesn't draw attention to itself. My eye stays on that awesome interior.

Jerry, the corrugated iron look good and is convincing.  It matches the oldness of the rest of the mill.  Nice job as usual.

I agree with others.  Seems to me that corrugated (iron or zinc) roofs have 4 states:  brand new, slight staining, patchy, and uniform rust.  You've captured that Stage 4 look just fine!
