MY BOOK BUY HERE – https://amzn.to/2Gvyglb More details on my website- http://www.thehomesteadcraftsman.com/p/cheap-houses.html Getting the new roof on this house has been a huge project, so many steps had to be completed to have it done……but it’s done. That’s how projects go, they seem like they will never end and then all of a sudden they are. After my part in working on the roof, I ended up hiring out the rest of the job to a roofer. It was simple, just nailing down shingles, but it was good “practice” for me to let someone else take over once in a while. The results were great in my opinion. The job took them only 2 hours to complete. While I did spend some time watching them install the shingles, I was able to work inside wiring up the new electrical into the panel. My goal is to sell or rent this house, not to work on it forever. So taking this step towards a more hands-off approach was big for me. The next hired job will be…..drywall I think, maybe insulation. I’ll also have some HVAC guys come in and hook up the heat pump.

    Best thing you did in my opinion is extend/make those beautiful overhangs and for the labor on the shingles, you would be crazy NOT to let them do it !! Great house and great decisions !!

    The shingles around the bathroom vent will probably seal itself down once the weather gets warmer anyway. Great episode, Cheers from PEI Canada, Bryan

    I have built houses from scat in the past and the longer that you spend on working on a house the more money will be consumed. I realize that there is a lot of money to be made by not hiring others to do the work yourself. There is that balance that you have to measure. Holding onto a house involves paying property taxes and electric bills whereby a lot more money can be made by volume turnover of houses. You have to remember that balancing is alway there. One other thing: Great job!!!!

    5:15 I love your videos, but I'm thinking you're maybe not so good at math? Also, if you live in an area where you get any wind at all, those guys nailed those shingles all wrong. They weren't nailing through the later underneath. Same when they did the ridge. If you can straighten out your math errors, you should next go ask for your money back.
    Edit: oh boy, the more I watch, the more I cringe. Whoever those roofers are, they took your money, and left you with a mess. There's no way that roof would ever pass inspection.

    Little late now, but why didn't you put a tin roof on the house. Cheaper, no special tools required, and can be done by one person. Not to mention it will out last a regular roof by 60 years. Just some thought for future projects

    I really like this dude. Gives me inspiration, from the UK thumbs up.

  • Kuba Stachu 1 week ago

    He hasn't finished a project yet, makes huge lot of rookie mistakes, gets followers probably wishing him luck and wanting to see how he develops, yet he already sells an e-book. Really?

    I know one thing…there are some sorry roofers out there. They can put on a beautiful roof that will leak in less than a year.

    Not saying your guys are those types of roofers. Just saying there are some sorry ones out there.
