The current focus is the area to the right of the windows.
The bottom of this section dies into the roof. See that galvanized trim tucked under the shingles? That allows the shingles to flare out. But, for this to work right, there needs to be an extension bit of trim on top of the galvanized trim so that the flared shingles properly creep up the angle of the roof.
So, a pressure-treated trim piece had to be custom cut. Electric planer to the rescue!
Perfect! This wood piece is not necessary above the metal trim. No, all that is really needed is that short section to the very right, which leaps past the galvanized trim. This will assure that the flared shingles can attach to something before dying into the roof.
New flashing had to be inserted for the roof shingles. And while it is hard to tell, the flashing angles back to the vertical wall plane. The wood shingles will do the same.
Yes, this all may seem confusing! But without these steps the new wood shingles will not die gracefully into the roof plane. Oh, the horror!
This will make more sense as progress images are posted!
