So, I’ve got a lean-to shed that’s 5 sided and I’m not quite sure how to start shingling it. Usually you’ve got rectangular roofs or sections of roofs and it makes starting the first course pretty straightforward.
I made a sketchup model to sort of show you what I’m talking about. It’s incomplete but hopefully gives you an idea. The roof is flat and level there at the front and slopes down toward the point in the rear back at a bit more than 2:12 pitch. Please ignore all the extra lines and the rafters that extend beyond the roof area. Didn’t have time to trim in the model.
So I’m thinking I start my layout lines from the top and snap them all the way down till I get to the point. I guess I put starter strips along the two rearward edges? Overlap them in the corner? I figure I’ll flash over the corner and over the shingles on the front 3 edges ? Anyway, just looking for advice. I’ve only done asphalt shingles once on a small rectangular house with a ridge, and there’s a million how-to videos out there that helped with that. This one seems a bit unique and I just don’t want to do something stupid.
