    Doesn't the flashing need to go under the siding and over the shingles? Seems like the water can run into the corner and follow that flashing right under the shingles to attack the underlayment the way you described it.



    BTW, nice fast build!

    Good question. When putting in flashing as you are shingling you use step flashing. That is 6"x6" pieces bent in an L shape. Each shingle against the wall get a piece nailed over it and under siding. Then the next shingle covers that piece of flashing and another goes on top. So end result is you don't see the flashing unless you look in the gap between the shingle and siding. That pushes any water down the roof along the flashing and into the gutter (gutter yet to be installed).

    Started into the ceiling today, I like it so far. Used pallet slats with felt paper behind so you can't see the insulation through the cracks.

    Remember to leave a small gap at the ends. Natural wood will contract and expand. Trim it out to cover the gaps. Looking good so far.

    Looking good, Swags. I'll start a thread up when I get the living room done on all the stuff I did to the room. I used a TON of reclaimed barn siding to cover up the structural beams, and also made some ceiling fan drops from the barnwood too. I'm doing reclaimed antique fir flooring in that room too (it's out of an 1830's farmhouse), got it planed and re-tongue and grooved, it's going to be going in over the next week......

    You're doing a nice job on the mudroom. I love the idea of the mason jar lights and the reclaimed palletwood ceiling!!

    I've been splattered in the face and eye's with scrapnel from my nail gun. Unfortunately its only a matter of time.
    Won't catch me without glasses on.

    This is looking straight up at the ceiling, have 3/4 of it done now. Man it's a lot of work taking apart that many pallets and keeping from breaking the boards. Also I did wear safety glasses for that. Working straight overhead reminded me that stuff will fall into my eyes and I was using a nail gun.
