Sheathing and roofing a 12/12 pitch
In a couple of weeks I'll be ready to start sheathing and then roofing the 12/12 front roof of my new shop. A 12/12 didn't sound too bad before I got the end walls tipped up 20 feet in the air....but it looks scary!
I've done a number of roofs before, but I doubt any of them over 4/12. This roof is over BCI's (TJI's from Boise Cascade, basically). I haven't started looking for roof jacks yet, but suspect I'll need them (I'm also going to install three skylights across the front, so this will be a little more work than just a straight sheath/roof).
Are there any better roof jacks than another, or just whatever Home Depot sells? Any advice on roping/harnesses/etc.? Alternatives to roof jacks?
The back pitch is 6/12, so I'm pretty comfortable handling that....a 45 degree angle just doesn't sound so bad until you're standing on the ground looking at it......
