Four-year roofing project completed

Cabin 3 was the second-largest roof
There were times when I didn't think I would ever say this, but our massive re-roofing project is done! We have now stripped the roofs of every building in camp and installed new 25 year shingles.
I wish I had kept track of the number of shingle bundles over the four years we worked on this project but judging by the 90 that we did this season, the total was probably 360 to 400.
The second-largest roof and the oldest was Cabin 3, completed in late August. A portion of this building was built by original Bow Narrows owner Bill Stupack in the 1930s.
The largest roof, of course, was the lodge, which I believe we completed two years ago.
Other than Cabin 3, buildings done this season were Cabins 4 and 6, the generator building, the fish house, the water plant, the recycling building and the water plant. And oh yeah, we also re-roofed the porch on Cabin 9 which had been damaged by a falling tree.
The total weight of the shingles we laid over those four years would have been 25,000 pounds!
That sounds like a lot but we also removed probably three or four times that much weight in old rolled roofing.
Whew! I'm glad we're finished.
