well,talk about the cart before the horse....my friend who wanted to help make my tiny house mo betta painted the interior. Absolutely made it mo betta! However, the roof leaks and I need to repair it so that I don't have to tarp it all of the time in order to avoid the leak. So...I have been up there a couple of times and here's what I know:

The PO put some sort of House wrap  seaming  tape on it that is crossways strips of about 5" each. so there are a LOT of strips. The goo is letting go up front where the old plywood (apparently replaced a long time ago) wasn't primed or sealed and the paint is letting go. Where the tape does stick it is like chewing gum on a hot sidewalk. The joins around the overhang are cracking and letting go. Two of the now skylights were at some point where an AC unit went. They are just capped off by plexiglass.

Here's what I don't know:

What the heck to do next. I am not able at this time to totally remove the roof and start over (preferred solution) so how do I proceed? I don't think anything will stick to the tape strips.

any ideas?

eternabond tape is what we use. roofing supply places have it in many widths- it is indestructible if put on a clean surface.w e keep a 6 inch wide roll and 2 inch roll in the bay.
