On an early spring visit to Breezy Hill just after the snow melted, President Dave Tabor observed pieces of the Porter Turret
Telescope roof had blow off over the winter.
Fortunately, with a thick and sound roll-roofing underlayment, no water damage had been done to the
building - but the cedar shakes clearly were in need of replacement.
Dave organized and led a couple of work parties to remove and replace the roof, which is documented on this page.
The new shakes are premium red cedar, as are the ridge boards.
Also done at this time: the two south-side rake boards were replaced and painted white. The metal loading steps were also painted at this time.
Workers on this project were:
Carl, Zhenya, Olga & Tatyana Malikowski,
and Dave & Julie Tabor
The work party was also very grateful for lunch provided by Cheryl
Breuning and the Wilders.
We entirely removed the old cedar roof and disposed of it.
Then we re-roofed the west side of the roof and replaced the
south-side rake boards.
We installed new shingles on the east side, installed the new
red cedar ridge boards, and painted the new rake boards and the
metal steps and loading platform.
