Building a Shelter #2 Construire un abris

À l’étape suivante j’ai installé des tasseaux en travers et sur le périmètre pour recevoir les panneaux du toit.

The next step was to install battens across and around the perimeter to receive the roof panels.




Ensuite les fascias d’aluminium ainsi que les moulures d’égouttement.

Then the aluminum fascias as well as the drip edge moldings.




Finalement les panneaux de toit de bitume moulés et peints. Tel que montré, j’ai utilisé un tasseau bien aligner les clous.

Finally the molded and painted asphalt roofing panels. As shown, I used a straight edge to align the nails.




Si un clou plie, ça fait tout un dégât, lequel je devrai couvrir avec du calfeutrage de la même couleur.

If a nail bends, it makes quite a mess, which I will have to fill with a bead of the same color caulking.


À cause de ce qui précède, j’ai décidé d’utiliser des vis pour fixer le faîtage. J’ai apprêté et peint les vis que j’avais en ma possession et ajouté des rondelles de caoutchouc afin qu’elles soient étanches et similaires aux clous vendus par le manufacturiers.

Because of the above, I decided to use screws to secure the ridge cap. I primed and painted screws that I already had on hand and added rubber washers so they would be waterproof and similar to the nails sold by the manufacturer.




Et enfin le faîtage, du même manufacturier.

And at last, the ridge cap, from the same manufacturer.


Mon projet est terminé et enfin j’ai un espace extérieur à l’abri des intempéries.

My project is finished and finally I have a weatherproof outdoor area.



 

J’ai réalise ce projet à mon rythme, le premier jour étant le 9 août et le dernier le 7 septembre. Lentement mais surement !

I built this project at my own paste, the first day being August 9th and the last one September 7th. Slowly but sure !

    Salut Serge

    Cet ouvrage me semble bien costaud!!

    N’aurais tu as du mettre un panneau translucide afin de laisser passer la lumière ?

    Concernant le délai : ne dit on pas que ” petit à petit l’oiseau fait son nid?? ”

    Au plaisir

      Salut Jack,
      Les extrémités étant ouvertes, nul besoin d’autre lumière. Le tout fait environ 2.10m par 2.5m.
      Et pourquoi pas : “Tout vient à point qui sait attendre” !!
      Au plaisir…

    Serge, you made me laugh to myself when you said “I built this project at my own paste, the first day being August 9th and the last one September 7th. Slowly but sure !”. I built something similar to yours in 1985 and it took one weekend to complete. I started another shelter project last summer and I’m still working on it – slowly but surely. I wish I had your energy 🙂
    Cheers

      Hi Mark,
      I don’t have energy, but I do have time.
      Day one I figured out how I would built the shelter. Day two, I cut and installed 7 studs for one side and seven more the day after for the second side. Day four was dedicated to batten one side and the day after the other side. Add one day for the facia and another one for the drip edge. Then add another day to nailing two corrugated panels on one side and the day after nailing the two panels on the opposite side (by the way, I only had to rip one edge of a panel on each side, therefore 2 cuts for the entire roof). Finally, in one day I added the ridge cap. Working slowly I was able to work no more than 2 hours per day, then rest the rest of the days.
      Please don’t think I have that much energy.
      Best,
      Serge

    Serge, I think we both don’t have the energy we used to so it must be that you work smarter than me :).
    Cheers

      We have to keep going and make good use of this energy. I don’t know what will happen ten years form now.
      Best,
