Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

It's not often you see a boat that would look better with a couple of blue poly tarps stretched over it. Then again, this one isn't completely unique as I did see a couple of canal boats in England with shingles a couple of years ago, and quite a few with tarps (maybe they were hiding the shingles?).

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

I think I would have put a steeper pitch on it...I think a 5.12 with red shingles would have been a better choice...then you pick up attic space for storage!

Take a look at fourth picture down they are not 3-tab. I believe they are starter shingles or cap. He does have them over lapped and on a stagger.

C'mon now I'm sure with his apparent skill level he installed ice and water shield under the shingles to both stop any water leaks and seal around those pesky roofing nails. The only thing that disappoints me is he didn't shingle the sides mansard style, that would have finished it off perfectly.
