Update on the roof

Well, its been a long time coming but the roof is almost finished.  The field tiles are laid on the front, back and dormers.  The rake trim detail got worked out and all but one rake are complete.  The answer for the rake was to put a heavy gauge aluminum flashing on all the rakes and then use barrel tiles to overlap the tile as it reaches the edge of the roof.  Due to vagaries in the squareness of the roof, tiles meeting the edge have to be trimmed to different widths.  This is covered nicely with the barrels since they can be overlaid over a barrel or valley and hide the variation.  The flashing just makes it look very clean.  Here are some picts:
