Want To Bet???
The Terrible Two are taking bets as to whether or not I am going to get the rest of the roof covered with what I have left....
Zar is on my side. Tessie is betting against. The only trouble with this scenario is...If Tessie sees that she is going to lose, she will certainly zap a few sticks away to make sure that I come up short.
For gluing, I use plain old white glue in a fine nosed bottle. I run a line across the top of the previous row and another approximately where the top of the new row will go.
It helps to have Spike's supervision. If any are too long and look like they would be fun to chase, I simply toss them over my shoulder. He brings them back and chews on them until they are the right size.
Zar, on the other hand, has his hammer ready....Never mind that I am not using nails. He's ready....Double power nap time.
As you can see, for a roof like this, I don't mess with measuring. I just cut the pieces by eye. I want it to look a bit rustic.
There were three rows of shingles on the part I am working on. I put three more rows on...It is very slow work, but someone has to do it....Those other two are up on the roof playing inspector.
If I want anything done.....
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
