Imagine framing a turret roof on site, two stories up, as simply as building a common garden gazebo. In this video, contributing editor 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.
