Like you, I am painting. I had every intention of painting the roof over Christmas but with too many visitors and it being too hot, I didn't!
I did wash the roof in preparation for said intended painting so that was worthwhile. Much better conditions at present to paint.

I have put the first coat on half of the house.

The original roof should only need two coats but the extension roof, which is in a different colour to the original (the original was going to be painted to match....) may require a third coat.

The second half of the roof is going to be a bit harder on the body (legs mainly) as it is at 27 degrees as against the 17 degree side that I have done. I am also doing it with a brush. There is not a roller made for the profile of the iron and I haven't got an airless sprayer.

View from the top.

Edit: The garage will get done as well, to match the house. I bought the paint 5 years ago to do the entire house, garage and roofs and some of it has been done.... can't rush these things....

I do have to admit, painting the roof with a brush is far more exciting than watching the grass grow. I hope you tightened up some nails first, not too hard, just enough to hold the iron down. Hot weather pulls out nails!

I had intended replacing all of the nails with Tek screws prior to painting. However, the greater majority of the nails (twist shank) were too tight to remove without doing excessive damage to the roof. Only a few that had really popped. It's a prick of a job, done it a few times over the years.

Done some painting of the picket fence at the front today - been here 17 years (and done sod-all) it's probably due a bit of maintanance....
during the week I'm doing a fair bit of working-from-home, in between refereeing bouts of disagreement between the kids!

You have taken the correct course of action and nailing a new roof (with a hammer) is a much harder job, the hand holding the nail gets rather sore!

Lively kids and small spaces = hard work. My neighbours have two energetic boys under 5. The boys are good but cant understand quite what is going on. The previous neighbours had a 5 yr old girl who used to visit me regularly, they moved to Whenuapai and I get regular messages that she misses me!. I miss her as well. Prior to this we had been visiting regularly. I live not far from North Shore Hosp.

it sounds like everyone is doing well.

I am working from home. my company is considered essential services. We have most if not all the company working from home. Inc our service desk. So that means I am working a full day.

And I must admit that I haven't touch the camera. still got plans to take a decent headshot. (have to figure out how)

I have got a brand new house so I have nothing to paint. But did want to build some shelves but didn't get the wood. Oh well next lockdown then.

so is there a challange?
