I was going to use aluminum flashing to cover over the ridge of the roof, but luckily, Davie had some left over ridge pieces from his barn project. They were a bit awkward to transport from Davie’s to my house, in of all things a Chevy Cobalt. Imagine following me down the road with this giant chunk of metal sticking out from my trunk.
In order to get up there to secure it down, I constructed a temporary ladder, and secured it to the ground. Then, all that was left was climbing up on top, without breaking through the roof, or worse, falling off the roof.
The string in my hand was used to lower the drill back down to the ground.
