How's? It going everybody welcomes back to part 5 of how to build a shed, slash Playhouse. Today, we're, going to be concentrating specifically on the roofing paper, as well as the bird boards on the side of the shed stay tuned with us.
It's going to be a process. Nobody likes this portion of the job. However, this is a very big and more very important portion of this project, so we're, going to show you guys how we did this. The way that we like to there's, a lot of different ways to do this, and if you watch videos, everybody has their own way, but this is going to be ours.
Hopefully, you get some sort of insight on how to do this. On our style, so the first thing you want to do on this size of the roof that we're working here is you obviously, don't want to bring a full roll of rolling paper roofing paper out onto your roof, just based On the fact that it's too bulky too heavy too much material to be brought upon the top, so just get a quick measurement of an idea of how much material you're gonna actually gonna Need for this roof and you to want to go by two: maybe afoot: half a foot over on each side, so about afoot.
So let's say that this is a span of ten feet on the roof. You want to make sure that you're, cutting out close to around 11 feet worth of material. Just get an idea of how much you're, going to have to cut how many sheets and then go ahead and bring those up to the roof, and the only reason we're.
Making. These measurements are just based on the size of this roof if it was a full house. Obviously, we'd, be bringing the whole roll up, and all you're going to do is roll this down on the ground level, um roll.
It out to about 11 feet, the edges do not have to be perfectly cut again. This is going to go up to the top of the roof, and you're, going to be able to make your cuts as needed up on top to make sure that everything is somewhat flushed or straight.
When you're, actually cutting off the roof, so just get a general idea. As long as you're going over ten feet, you know work with what you have, but as long as you're, going over ten feet on the roof, ll, be perfectly fine.
These do not need to be cut perfectly, while on the ground level, and all I'm doing here - is cutting out five sheets and the only reason is we're, going to have two on each side and one big piece hanging Over the ridge board area the point of the actual roof - and this is how easy it is to cut this material.
All you need is a razor blade line it up and then pull your arm back to make the cut that's. It just makes sure that you guys have a good sufficient amount of razors for this entire project. So once you have the bottom one measured out to roughly around 11 feet, all you have to do is roll this roll.
The roofing paper from the bottom portion up to the top and make your cuts again. They're, not all going to be the same exact cut arm, but that's. Ok, as long as they're beyond ten feet. That's. What you need so again.
This is me speeding up the video, so you can see this at a process a little bit faster, but it's. The same thing rolling from the bottom rolling your way up, making the cut start again until you get the number of sheets that you're, actually gonna need doing it.
This way is gonna save you. A lot of you know back aching and just overworking yourself with this portion once you have them cut out, just go ahead and roll them up. Um again, you're doing one by one here, you don't want us, you don't want to roll them all up together, because once you're on the roof, then you're.
Going to have to be taking them apart, so roll them up one by one arm, and then once you're done rolling these up just try to keep them as compact as possible. I know that these are really rough sheets to work with and it's very hard to get in very tight, but do whatever you can in order to get them as tight as possible, but not to ruin them.
And then, once you're done with this, we're, going to be taking these up to the top of the roof, all right. So, as you can see from the measurement here, these sheets are right. Around 39 inches just a little beyond just keep in mind that all you really need for overlapping on roofing is right around six inches, just based on the fact that we're, not going to trim anything off, and we have these already at 39.
Inches we're, going to do some 14 inches. 13 14 inch overlaps and this roof is going to be very watertight when going up and down a ladder with the material, especially um, going all the way up to the roof.
Heavy material causes you to go off-balance lean to one side, so just be very, very careful when dealing with material going up and down a roof. A lot of people stand up there. You know they put a rope on the bottom and somebody just pulls it from the bottom level up to the top.
When you're, doing this by yourself, just be careful, you can also invest in a harnessed of some sort to make sure that you don't fall off the roof when the wind comes, it could take. You so again use caution and my working partner just showed up my dad.
He's, ready to work, and we're ready to get this thing knocked out. So once you have all your material up to the top of the roof. This is how we put on this adhesive. You can use different types of tools, but what we have here is a broom that will fit inside of the bucket instead of dumping, the bucket on the roof, and making a huge mess.
We just dip the broom into the bucket itself and roll it onto the plywood. You don't have to cover the entire plywood. With this, you just want to get a good grip on the actual roofer paper, so that's.
That's. Basically, what we're doing here is getting a grip on the roofing paper that's. It we're, not covering the entire thing. So again, this is the tool that we're using. There are different tools to use, but a broom.
This thing runs like five dollars at Lowe's so again use the actual tools that you know you're me. It'll throw away in the future, and when doing this project, this portion of old clothes old shoes it'll get messy.
So, as you can see here, the large overhang initially that was cut out is not going to be for this portion, this side of the shed, my dad's using the smaller cut portion arm, and once he has this lined up.
I'm, going to do is line it up with the deciding and mainly where the actual edge, where the drip edge is going to go. That's. What you want to be lined up with this sheen so once you have that lined up or be rolling it down, just try to get as many air bubbles out as possible.
So when you pull this material, the air bubbles should come out once you have a good amount down, go ahead and tack this in with a roofie nail, don't nail, all of them in just tack this in order to keep it from Moving on you and just a tip for when using this actual adhesive, you are not clumping.
This one you're, not making it thicker than another portion of it. It's a very thin coat. This thing will get so strong and holding this roofing paper down that you don't need more than you believe you will need so thin coat on this stuff.
So you can see here how the edging of the roofing paper is near or flushed with the edging of the actual plywood itself, so that's, where the drip edge is going to go. You'll see it at the other end of the plywood.
We already made a small cut so that we're, not fighting with the roofing paper. Once we're, putting this drip edge on I don't want to cut it too short, and then you're, going to start once you have your first sheet down just based on the size of this roof itself.
You're, going to go ahead and move your way to the other side and start on that. You want to make sure they're overlapping from the top down. So you're, going to want to start from the bottom level first and work your way up and the same exact process once you have that overhang just go ahead and trim it to somewhat the size of where the drip edge is going to go, And then go ahead and start on your other two pieces of roofing paper until you get to the top, you can see that they're overlapping with the adhesive, as if you're, just putting a piece of roofing paper up there With no roofing paper on the bottom of it so kind of keep the same exact width, and you know that this roofing paper is going to be stuck to this thing.
For years to come. And once you're ready to go just go ahead and put your roofing paper on once you get down to the edge, you have somebody else, pull from one side, and get all the air bubbles out. Once you have the two sides down with the two pieces of roofing paper, you're, going to overlap the very top with the extra fifth piece of roofing paper we have here.
These are massive overlaps. Again, all you need is six inches, but we're, pretty much going 13 inches on this all right. So, as you can see here, I am starting with a drip edge. You can also see the types of nails that we're using.
I like using these green nails with a plastic top my dad enjoys using the ones without them it's up to you. It's, just your preference for whatever you want to use that's. Why they're mixed in the middle because I was on the edge and my dad was up on top and now getting started for the bird boards on the edges.
This is where the two rafters are on. The sides are the open space that's between the two rafters above the actual, true wood that we use for the sheathing. This portion right here is going to be cut out to size and then punctured with two holes inside and then filled with screening.
So all that needs to happen here is making the measurement transferring the measurement from between the two rafters that are sticking out on the edges arm against the actual framing portion transfer.
Those numbers onto this would make a chalk line and then use a skill saw or a worm drive of some sort to go ahead and make your cut and, as you can see here, the chalk lines are made. All the measurements are on this board and all we're going to do is cut from that chalk line cut on that chalk line from one side to the other.
Once you have that portion cut out, then you're, going to go ahead and make your individual markings that are between the two rafters and once you make those markings, then you're, going to cut those out.
So you have your individual pieces, and bird boards are very important just based on the fact that you want some sort of circulation running through that roof area, and it really is just as simple as that.
There's, really no hard thinking to this portion other than making some transfers of measurements onto this board and making your cuts. Once you have all your pieces cut out to length and size, then you're going to make your bird holes.
Now the holes are up to you, probably every six inches between from the left side to the bird hole to the other bird hole. To the left, to the right side, you know, however, you want to do it just make it look nice.
All you're going to be using here is make sure you use a drill that actually is powered through a cord. Unless you have a very powerful drill, battery-powered ones are just not going to work for this, so make sure you get yourself a powerful drill with a cord hooked up to it to be able to plug this thing in use a bit that's.
Going to be boring out whatever size holes, you want whether you want a two and a half-inch hole. A two-inch hole that it all depends on your preference. All we're using here is actually a hammer drill that has the ability to do an actual drill bit to it.
So it's, going to be a powerful, powerful enough drill for us to use on this project, and all we're going to do is make two holes in each board, and these things are going to be ready to go. Put up there with some, you know, finish nails and then, in the end, the result we're, going to be putting up some screening behind it, so that no actual birds go into it all right, so you can see where he'S actually putting these bird boards up, they look nice.
It's, going to enclose the remainder of the shed all right, so everything is put up now and it is all in place. Leveled off everything looks straight. You can see the bird board from this steel shot here.
You can see it. I have two holes in each bird board and that's. What's, going to create the circulation inside the actual structure itself? Alright, so, as my dad was working on these bird boards, I was working on the actual drip edge itself, so you can see that the drip edge is up.
That's. What's, going to make the water run off the actual side of the building, so it doesn't fall onto the building. Now you can't really do much about rain and wind. At the same time, that's, going to hit your shed no matter what, but the most you could protect it do it.
You know every structure needs out. Some drip edges so make sure you put these on in the corners. So you can see that all the bird boards are up now they have yet to be put. We have we haven't put the screening on there yet, but you can see a wide opening.
This is what your board bird boards are. Looking like from the inside, so what I purchased was just some regular screening like for a screen door, and this is what they look like here, and these things run about six or seven dollars, depending on the size that you're.
Getting and all you need is a six-dollar piece of material and that's, going to be stapled over these bird board holes. So big! Thank YOU.
