The Ceiling's the Limit!: Chapter II

Hello again everyone, hope all is well, and you are finding pleasure in your pursuits.

 

Last time I posted, I had a little less than half of the new roof completed. This time I have some shots of the completed roofing (well almost! :) just waiting for the rest of the aluminum extension to be installed before sealing the joints and edges with Eternabond Webseal, which will then get a coating of Liquid Rubber, the only liquid EPDM roof coating available.

 

The beauty of the Liquid Rubber is that it doesn't "chalk" like sheet EPDM, and it forms a solid, continuous BOND to the plywood roof. I really like it's properties, and intend to fully weather test it as soon as it cures. Curing takes less time with increased temperature, and curing time is not affected by humidity. Thank goodness! Here in the deep south there is so much humidity in the heat of summer that any fresh painting you do will sometimes take weeks to reach the non-tacky state, and a month or two to fully cure.

 

Still have yet to fasten the siding, but she's taking shape! 

 

I used painted aluminum trim coil to extend the siding, since such a small order of the original profile was prohibitively expensive. I'll paint it Ivory to match the original color.

A couple shots of the cabover bunk area. Please forgive the overexposure. :)

3/8" plywood continuous over 2" actual dimension rafters. All will be coated with EPDM's 'Liquid Rubber' in white.

 

Well, that's all for now. Stay tuned for the third and final chapter in this portion of my rebuild!

 

Dave
