This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading.

For this BB, you will be replacing a roof on a small building with metal roofing (<400 square feet)!

Here is a related video:


To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - the materials you are starting with
 - the original roof
 - part way through replacing the roof
 - the finished metal roof on a small building (<400 square feet)

Quick question.  What if the building had a different kind of roof and you are putting on a new metal roof?

Good question.  I think the point of this one is to show that you can install metal roofing more than you can replace it.  I'll change it above...
