Yesterday I showed you guys the DIY sandbox with roof that we built for Indigo's 2nd birthday. We knew that the perfect finishing touch would be to shingle the roof. Not only are shingles essential for protecting the roof, they make any project look more attractive and finished. Let's face it- a plywood roof doesn't look so hot! I partnered up with Timberline® shingles from GAF to show you how totally do-able it is to shingle a playhouse or shed roof.
I've done my fair share of DIY home projects but I've never used shingles before. I always thought they they were best left to contractors and other professionals. Not true!!! I was surprised at how easy it was to shingle a small structure. As soon as we finished this project I started looking for other things to shingle- chicken coop, you're next!
I decided to use Timberline® Natural Shadow® shingles in Shakewood. I wanted a natural color that complimented the unfinished wood. Timberline® is the best selling shingle in North America and I can totally see why! They come in a wide variety of colors to enhance any project and they're very durable. As soon as I took them out of the packing, I knew these built to last!
I outlined all the steps below, so you guys can see that shingles definitely aren't intimidating as you might think!
