I have also been advised to double up on the bottom row. I assume this is to make sure all seams are covered with no leak through to the wall, is that correct? Does having the bottom row twice as thick cause any issues with laying the next row?


Yup. Definitely double up the bottom for that exact reason and no, you will have no problems nor will the effect be visible when it's complete.

Ne, ne, ne. Dan, no nailgun on cedar shingles. There are nails for just such a purpose. The tops of the shingles are very thin and you need a headed nail to hold them properly. There are guns that will accomodate, but they're too expensive for a little job ($250-300).

I, too, thought the actual application of the shingles was pretty simple. I was wrong. While still not rocket science, I'd check out a HOW-TO book chapter on it.

Thanks guys, I THINK i am set now, but I am also aware that I will learn as I go. I am going to shingle 2 areas of the house and one of them is partially hidden by bushes and is the smaller surface area, so I will start with that one to hide and learn from my mistakes there so that when I get to the big area that is front and center on the driveway approach to the house I'll be a non-paid professional! If it turns out good I'll post pics. If I hack it I won't post pics but just tell you how awesome I am. grin

Picked up slightly less wood than I'll need for the project today! Rats.

But hey, it smells good. I went with cedar.

Look at the bright side, at least you have enough to make up for the "Aw, sh#t!" moments.

Well, given that I have 10 8 foot 2x6s and I need 4 8 foot lengths and 4 4 foot lengths per box... I hope I won't have any aw sh#t! moments in regards to that. If i can't cut a board in half, well, I have a problem.

I think I have enough length in 4x4s to accommodate any potential moments.

We'll what else I need, but first I need to make my sawhorses.

Ken, having extra lengths of cedar in the garage is not bad. Think of them as manly-men air fresheners?

Hmm... No women in the house. Maybe I can put a few in my bedroom?
