I felt it was worth painting a protective layer of creosote on edges of the log cabin home observatory roof before I tacked down the shingles over the edges.
This I did today – weather looked fine.
Just as I finished the rain came down!
The gloves I am wearing are vetinerary gloves designed to allow vets to put their arms in cows’ bottoms up to their elbows! I used them to stop getting creosote on my arms when I was painting the stuff on to the cabin under the eves – worked although creosote dissolved the gloves and I had to keep changing them so good thing that they came in packs of 50!
