I have seen some of the larger thicker slates with 4 total holes for nails. The one roof we did with that thexture was 12" slates with 15% 16" slates mixed in. It was laid random with a huge stagger that made the rows almost interweave. 4 different colors and quite a bit of difference in thickness. Very fun to roof, but it took a Looong time to do.

On those 3" slates , what fasteners/ nails do you use? And how many?
Just dealing with the different thicknesses and making them lay right looks difficult.

We did one similiar to that about 15 years ago. I too think it is one of the neatest looking roofs around. Happy hunting!

I found it! After seeing this great house in the Slate Roof Bible, I have always thought about it. So last week we set out to find it (still raining dammit), and I am glad we did, wow - random width, length, thickness and color, -- and only 20-25 minutes from my Moms house in Granville ! I just stood there staring at this place for quite a while and got a few photos. No one had me arrested so I guess it was OK. http://picasaweb.google.com/EBraymer/LakeStCatherineHouse#
