thanks john,
it was a challenge, as we had two separate directions of water travel to be concerned with. the obvious water running down the main roof, and the water that may run to the left and right of the eyebrow.
we would have liked to have run a "curved valley of slates" but that was not possible here with the drastic change in pitches between the two roofs.

Boy Chris, you guys are good! How did you transition that flashing where the round met the upper roof? I can see it is like a "Z" strip function, but how to bring the water back over the slates on the eyebrow? Just curious?

I like that steep work better. It's almost like working at an easel. Nothing worse that squatting on the boards all day on lower slope, or even worse, installing from above on a 4:12...

Wow, almost too steep for the slate brackets! Nice stuff for sure! At that pitch, I would consider 90 degree regular roof brackets for a 2 x 8 or 2 x 10, with a flange welded to the bottom to spread out the weight and stabilize them on the roof. a screw in each one to hold the plank steady would also make it safer. You have the scaffold set to the bottom for sure and that is very safe. we don't want to "lose" any of you guys, so stay safe. Nice copper work too! congrats. John

This is a Historic and Landmarked brownstone in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. It was designed and built in 1885 by architect Mercein Thomas in the Queen Anne/ Romanesque Revival style.

We are restoring the slate roof and from a slaters point of view it has some very interesting roof features including a turret, chapel, eyebrow dormer and alot of custom copper work.

We are replacing failing PA with North Country Unfading Black.

Here are some before pictures
