I ordered the shakes for our 1880’s Gothic Debatable tower today. I’m replacing all the cedar on it. Got some trim work around the edge of the roof to do as well. Oh, and a couple pieces of tin to fabricate.
12 cartons…96 shingles/carton. 3 different patterns (fancy-ing this up just a bit).
I’m pretty sure they are a thin cedar veneer over a solid gold substrate (based on cost).
Shipped in from Canada.
So, I’ve got the tools…
…and will shortly have the material.
That about does in my spring budget…
