Rebuild and Fix
above and Beyond!
and Carol emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked of they could do some
repairs to the roof at Skyline and I said sure, They spent 4.5 hrs and
30 leaks and put a temp roof on the restroom. Mark and Carol went above and
beyond the call to duty.
all of us at the MHSC we would like to thank you for a job well done.
Carol and I were able to patch about 30 holes in the warming hut.
We put in ~ 4.5 hours on the warming hut. I’ve attached a couple of photos to
show the work done. Most of the time was moving the ladders around so I could
stay on the roof. It was super slick up there with the moss and needles. Safety
first is our motto. We added shingles to the left side as shown in the next
photos. I tried to match up to the existing few shingles that were there, but
Carol and I decided it didn’t look right. So I removed the few shingles on the
left side, and used them to fill in on the right side. If you guys would like,
I have enough shingles left over to swap out the right side so it matches. If
it looks okay to you folks, that is fine also.
While we were there, the north wind came up. This caused quite a
racket down at the restroom. I took a look and found that the plywood was loose
in multiple areas and flexing quite a bit. In the meeting last month you
mentioned it had to last a couple of years. So yesterday, I went up and worked
on it to get it into better shape.
2 hours later and as you’ll see, I believe it’s in much better shape now. The
bow in the roof between the first and second roof joists can also be fixed
fairly easily, but I didn’t want to make any structural changes without
consulting you folks first. We can shim up the second joist to get rid of the
bow. The shingles were left over from my carport addition. I had the materials
around except for the 2 pieces of galvanized edging and some felt which I’m donating
to help keep things in shape.
I’ve never been to the Warm Springs warming hut. If it needs some
maintenance, I’ll gladly go out and work on it.
We could get a work party to work on
it, and fix the joist on the restroom at the same time.
