I'd also like to advise those of you out there who haven't used a hot glue gun that they are very hot. That might seem obvious but when you get hot glue on your fingers... well its one of those things that you think you know, until you get the glue on your skin. Ouch ouch ouch.
Contrary to what you guys might think I've used this glue gun before. It's actually the only glue gun I've ever used. And its not like its this huge thing. See?
|It's what? Five inches at the most?|
However I did manage to get some of the shingles on. The instructions called for half shingles or copper flashing. I really didn't care for either one of those things. So I used black paint on the lowest edge of the roof.
|See? To show through the angles of the shingles.|
|It's not easy to see but on the right is where I sanded down little shingles.|
|Yep at least an hour and a half of work. And the top row still has to be done.|
But I got it done eventually.
|It doesn't look bad...but I'm still not sure about the color.|
|I'll do the top row later today or tomorrow.|
The last thing I did was add the corbels to the eaves. See?
|Maybe I'll put another coat of white paint on the spindles of the railings...|
But if I don't see all of you before Christmas I hope you have a Merry one.
