I'm working my way around the front. This part of the house originally had an enclosed porch, so I'm removing all of the clapboard and trim and re-installing it. The clapboards don't line up with the side of the house and some of the trim needs to be replaced (bevelled) so that the rain water will drain properly.
I will also build a slate roof over that bay window that will work into the roof of the main entrance, but I'll be doing the main roof up top 1st.

Lap joining copper seams for this small roof. I will have 3 sheets soldered, and all pre-tinned. Always open to suggestions if anyone has done copper, slate or carpentry work.
Here is the roof with just the drip edge:
