Wow... that was fast. Once these guys got started, they certainly got the job done quick!

The initial roofing is done. All the tile is on, tacked down, and the initial flashing has been installed.
I'm really fairly happy with these roofing tiles. As I noted in earlier posts, these are a bit thicker than the normal roofing tiles, have a 50-year warranty, and are pretty fire-resistant. The color is good and fits in with the "castle" look fairly well. About the only thing I could have done better would have been to use actual slabs of stone or something, and as one might suspect that's a bit pricey... maybe after the inevitable Powerball win!
There will be some more stuff down the road, of course. We haven't done any roof penetrations yet (this apparently varies by builder, but Builder Dale prefers to put the holes in as needed rather than have plans change after they're cut) and of course once they are, there will be additional flashing and such. The tower hasn't been done at all yet, nor has the waterproofing work on the deck--both of those will involve several layers of sealing and membrane installation. Neither is "classic roofing" work, however, so they'll be done by a different crew specializing in that kind of thing.
Still it's an important milestone... Tanglewood is one step closer to completion!
