Day 20 Gazebo Project - Felt and Shingles

This post is going to be short and sweet.   We finished flashing the entire roof and completed a little more than 2 1/2 sections of the felt and shingles.  This took us about 5 hours yesterday afternoon.  We had to stop a couple times because of rain (thunder and lightening, too) and then the rain came for good at 5:30 pm.  I was plenty ready to be done for the day anyway.
We ran out of shingles, so back to Home Depot for another 4 bundles.  This estimate was completely off.  Remember to review your material list VERY closely if you let someone else do the take off.  I'm still kicking myself for not doing that.
We hope to spend the whole day Friday working to finish the roof.  With any luck we'll be just about finished.  We have some concern about the stability of the posts that we still need to address but that is a topic for another day.  Gazebo Part is almost here!
