The ridge top is broken on 1/16" increments, looks like a curve. You literally have to put your nose on it to see the brake lines. Had some of this ridge left over from the CWRU Alumni House. For our new 16 oz. half-hard copper I usually pay slightly less than twice what they pay me at the scrap yard.

talking copper, what would you pay say a pound?
Yes when that ridge weathers down it'll look wonderful
Do you take a pattern to the sheetmetal guy and he presses it out? or is it a stocked profile

I would have put a plumb cut on the aluminum fascia beneath your brothers neat endcap for the ridge.

Nice job Chris. You know at first I though the clipped edges where mostly for wind, I reasonly found out that they are also used to divert water. The water runs along that cut edge back on to the roof!

Yes, we do framing and finish carpentry routinely. I was a union carpenter before getting into slate.

My brother Mike planned & built that particular structure, with a little help from his friends. 1" thick solid poplar decking, nice and solid.

looks like fun, well the guys are enjoying it and they have not been drinking much brew either
here you would have 10 safety inspectors inspecting your staging
For myself I'm not so keen on the rounded bottoms
But you guys are great at what you do
Do you build the building ever? or only the roof?

Random width, ragged butt, swept rakes, ~10% heavies, 4 color VT blend of leftover slate from another project. Vinyl siding to match their house, not my idea. I let the Owner help, since he used to work for me and all..

Finished product:


Custom ridge cap made & soldered by Anthony:


Getting started:


Stocking slate (16-22"L, sw grey/green, unfading emerald green, mottled green & purple, royal purple):


We had a helper, she also made tasty sammiches:


Owner's wifey with "her" slate:
