So... you expanded the play area?  On the front side of the roof (where the kids will be playing), how far from the roof to the ground/driveway?

Good & useful idea; but I could see the insurance co. not being to happy with it though.  But then I don't like insurance companies...

If I did something along that line, The raccoons would be having a party up there every night. As it is, I already have to hose their s--t off my deck periodically. No raccoons in your area, WBBN?

BTW, this is not meant as criticism, I'm just curious.

My only concern, not intended as a criticism, is how about the wear on the shingles.  Roofing materials prices have drastically risen here.  It may have been due to the hurricane that went ashore across northwest Florida and into Georgia last fall.  Anyway to cover 20 squares, the materials cost over $5K, then the labor of another 2 grand.  It was cheap compared to other roofs, but expensive to a retired federal employee.

Good point but this is not somewhere I go all the time.  Just to clean gutters and do minor repairs.  From this standpoint you would get wear anyway.  I just eliminated the ladder from the equation.

Good job on that, It is sturdy and well built. I don't like to get onto my roof anymore, be a good place to sit and look at the stars on a warm night though.

My wife's cats agree with you!  Or just have some fun and run up and down the ladder half the night.:Laughing:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
