Triming The bathhouse peak vent

This is the special vent trim that is needed for standing seam roofing. It is designed in such a way to vent air/moisture out of the roof and keep rain water out.

We needed to cut each piece to fit in between each standing seam.

I am placing window glazing between the roof and the vent trim to seal it from water.
The vent trim all in place.

Installing the Windows for the Bathhouse

We are placing the side trim that will hold the window in place.
The windows are attached from the outside and are screwed into the wood trim. We will then stucco the outside of the building right up to the window edge.

All the windows are in place. It only took 2 hours to complete this part!

Another crew comes in. I have found it is easier to acquire a dozen chicks a year than to get 3 dozen every 3 years, it keeps it all fresh and one always has attrition from predators.

Roofing the bath house.

We have set out the roofing sheet in the order that they will be placed on the roof.
I am measuring the sheets to be cut, this is a very important step to get the roofing the right length, too long and the water will miss the gutters, too short and there could be leaks.
We have gathered the clips, screws and driver for securing down the sheets.
We pulled a string as a guide for where the roofing will end.
The clips are installed to anchor the seam down before we place the other sheet.
Each standing seam needs to be placed in position to lock it together with the previous panel.

The vent roof treatment here is a metal gasket piece which is glued down and screwed.
