hi all,
 
tonight i want to show you a little more about how the roof details are coming along.  the photo below shows how i mount all my roof-walk supports.  it is also one of the very few places that i use wire-brads in construction.  each support is held by 2 brads until the glue dries, that way i can add them in a hurry without disturbing the ones that i've just installed.  glueing requires good close fitting joints and a small amount of pressure to ensure good contact.  most of the time i use clamps, but there are those situations where clamps won't do...but wire-brads can.
 
enjoy,
