We typically use 16"x16" 20 ounce copper flashing folded corner to corner on closed valleys, and it goes down pretty fast.

I took a look at your site and the roof looks awesome. We just installed a small roof (6 squares) with 18" and 20" slates, 5 widths - a mix of salvaged and new sea green. Looks great.

The flashing at the valleys is taking some time. (stop, scratch head... go buy more material, borrow metal brake, climb back on roof, scratch head, look at slate book, nail... repeat)

Trying to take pictures now and then...

Laying staggered butts and random widths really gives you a big fudge factor for misalignment, etc. (of course, I am still obeying sidelap and headlap requirements) I picked the random look because I liked it best, but now I see it's probably the easiest style to install... especially if the roof is not perfectly square... as in my case.

Anyone every had to put (curved) drip edge on an eyebrow? Ideas? I've not used metal dripedge elsewhere on the roof, but on the eyebrow I need to cap the tongue and groove soffit boards, and I think dripedge could be the solution here. (there will be no fascia board, so-to-speak, on the eyebrow dormer)
