Shingles up to the small window are now installed, and partially under the arched opening!
The wood on the lower arch is in poor condition. The outer trim is salvageable but the flat wide piece between the facing trim is…
…shot. Luckily, it proved to be quite thin, like 1/4-inch thick, so I should be able to find some thin oak to replace the bad section with.
This week, the already installed shingles will get painted. Then, the scaffolding will get another level, and this upper section can get re-shingled.
This corner has seemed endless due to the massive amount of work of, basically, wholly rebuilding it. At first, I simply thought it needed some missing shingles replaced!
I should not however have been surprised. Everything under this second-floor level was 100% rebuilt in 2014, and I mean everything: all the framing and even the sill!
So, I am greatly looking forward to getting OUT of the corner!
And this is next! (Click to enlarge.) While the shingles don’t look that bad, I am gonna bet they will all need replacing. And who knows what horrors are lurking under. I think the scaffolding will be erected over to the left, with a “bridge” built to span the porte-cochère roof. Also, because of the south sun, I will need to build a kind of room in front of whole upper south wall, faced with tarp, to protect myself and the tender new shingles from the sun.
