The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire

Checked the porch this morning, and no visible leaks. Makes for happy marmot.

Hey, it's actually looking like a porch now. And it looks solid, which it didn't used to. Getting the roof on makes a hell of a lot of difference.
I still have the work lights up there from last night, and one extra sheet of OSB. I was originally planning on a little bit of overhang, but changed my mind back to the original plan after I was actually installing the roof decking.

The underside. You can se the section of notched joists on the edge. This is because of the overhang along the sides; it had to be mechanically sound enough to walk out on the edge. Those notched sections are seriously solid.
Actually, with the decking in place, the whole roof is solid enough to walk on comfortably. I still need to put in some blocking underneath, but I'm not worried about the jiggle factor at all. This baby ain't goin' anywhere.

Looking the other direction. The ceiling looks a bit high, but remember that it will actually be lower after the insulation is in place.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with how it looks.

    Feeling downright buildy tonight. After walkies, I may get some work done. Maybe.

    The boiler is working wonderfully now. It was indeed cleaning that it needed.
