I'd finished the roof a while ago, but didn't get to taking pics of it complete-so here they are. I've peeked my head out during a strong storm and the gutter is doing great even with that little slope. The cool thing about such slight slope is that the gutter stays cleaner. The wind takes the leaves and sticks right out. Still, I'll be adding a bit more slope going forward.

Installing Azek beadboard and Crown. The stuff is really great-nice and thick. The only problem I'm having is installing 18' lengths by yourself gets a bit hard since it's so flexible.

The sidewall photo is new solid cedar clapboard. No finger jointed.

This post has nothing to do about roofing, but I thought it was such a good site I thought I had to post it.

I was thinking about direct hot water and came across EZ Tankless. Really great site. If only all appliance manufacturers had sites like this.

The fact that you can exhaust through the wall makes it a no brainer when I have to replace my hot water heater.

They even have models for use outside that only require a hose 2 D batteries and gas from a tank that is used for a barbeque.
