This roof was the second stop on my tour that started in 2015. The client, Sarah Polzin is a director of training for the National Parks service. We had been introduced through my demonstrations for Preservation Trades Network.
Traditional metal roofing in the french style: This is the built-in gutter, with a pleated corner. The pleats allow the sheet to turn a corner without cutting/soldering. The downspout seam is also hand-formed similar to the seam in the bottom of a metal bucket.
Once the gutter is formed, and placed the pans go in, and starts the process of hand-hammering.
