I didn't get on the roof to see, but I imagine they were long nails or screws. I stood on a slate rock wall and reached up and put my hand on one and had somone take a picture for perspective. I have big hands, and literally, some of them were as thick as my hand would spread. I suppose 50 to 60 # / square foot in those areas. I guess it is steel construction and a plywood deck beneath it. So much slate it is almost ugly in places; but still a beautiful roof

I'm curious as to how they fasten them to the roof. Pegs? Long, thick nails? My arms hurt just lookin' at it, but really nice.

I think 'Rock on' would be an appropriate shout out here.

How far into the ground did the foundation sink when the roof was done?

For those that were not at the conference, some of those slates are about 6 inches thick!
