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.
