ya, hard work today, hauling all those 8x4 sheets up like a 25 foot ladder was interesting.. they probably weigh about 50lbs or so.. and the wind was like 50-60km/h all day

had to do one at a time cuz the pitch of the roof didn't allow us to leave them laying up there.. they would have slide off.. and it was VERY gusty up there..

That pitch is nothing though, we did everything on our big ctg up north try sheeting a 12/12 pitch in the wind about 40ft up haha
