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

For this BB, you will be replacing or installing a roof on a large building (>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: <br />   - the materials you are starting with <br />   - the roof you're starting with <br />   - several views of the construction at various stages <br />   - the finished roof on a large building (>400 square feet)

I took one side of the roof off of my sugar shack, added a lean-to to it and reroofed both roof bits.  Total length is 34', upper section is 4', lower section is 14' for a total of approximately 612 square feet.  Photos are cramped a bit since it's right up against the woods.
