This nice little home in Three Forks was due for a new roof. We stripped off one layer of old shakes and one layer of deteriorating asphalt shingles. We then installed plywood over the old roof to cover up gaps in the old board sheathing. This created a solid surface for the new shingles. Then we dried in the roof with ice and water shield and Titanium underlayment and installed new Malarkey Highlander shingles in silverwood color. We also replaced areas of water damaged fascia and primed and painted the new fascia.
A new coat of bright barn red paint on the siding and white on the trim really brightens up these old farm buildings in Manhattan.
Our tiny, ancient garage with the dirt floor that flooded every spring just wasn't providing us with enough space! We decided to build a new shop with usuable space on the second floor for an office. We used bonus trusses to build the second story. The building is located in our back yard in Three Forks. The lot is in the 100 year flood plain so the new building had to be built to meet FEMA's standards for these areas. The shop is elevated to raise it above the base flood elevation.
We removed the old roofing, dried in the roof with ice and water shield and titanium underlayment and installed new 30 year Malarkey Highlander-CS asphalt shingles with Malarkey starter and ridge. We also removed the old skylights and replaced them with new Velux brand fixed curb-mount skylights.
We built this two garage on Adams Street in the summer of 2015. The finished building is sided and roofed to match the existing home.
