Haha, the building inspector didn't want to touch my roofing plan. He punted me back to the state...he doesn't handle mobile home stuff. He just didn't want to touch it. I got the feeling he was in over his head. Apparently people around here just build whatever on the weekends when he's not around. If nobody complains for a year it's grandfathered in. So, I'll get my calculator out and figure out what the roof load would be and run it by an engineer. Or I may put the whole metal roof project off for a while and use a heavy duty sealer on the existing roof. That would buy me at least a couple of years. The main thing is not to have my interior work compromised by roof leaks. One thing about working on an old building is that you have to be flexible and willing to figure it out as you go along. Got the discharge pump installed in the swamp cooler but ended up drinking beer with the roofing guy and didn't get the boat engine tested. My outdrive is still stuck in the up position even after having a 200 pound guy stand on it. Either the solenoid is sticking or the cylinder is stuck. It will have to wait until next week now. Back to Santa Fe to pick up a table saw and throw a party!
