Video Vault: How to Install Shingles on a Steep Turret
Smart framing and layout make this job seem easy.
Imagine framing a turret roof on site, two stories up, as easily as building a common garden gazebo. In this gem from the Fine Homebuilding Video Vault, Rick Arnold and his crew assemble a turret roof in the middle of a house’s second-story floor deck, which allows them to frame, sheathe, and shingle most of the structure without using ladders. Then, after the turret roof is assembled, it can slide into place and be integrated with the siding and roofing.
