Did those ancestors happen to leave you a recorded history of why/how they built it? I always liked the theory that it was built by space aliens...Where exactly did you say you are from?

Excellent planning, Jon. You can be proud of yourself. Not many could tackle a job like this alone. I just wish there were photos of you doing what you are describing.

Thanks for the step-by-step DIY..

Does your house have multiple balconies, Jon?

Just the one, it's primary function is drying washing and airing bedding though it is nice to sit there awhile.

That looks like another one on the side. My perspective must be wrong. It's the house next door?

The prep was the hardest part as all the original paint was badly oxidized, I spent a lot of time sanding and applying a sealer coat.

I'm taking a days rest, as the temp approaches 90 a roof is just no place to be.

At 90 degrees, no place in the sun is the place to be! Having a heatstroke is no fun (yes, speaking from experience). But risking one while on a roof would be foolhardy. You will get the job done much faster if you remain in good health Thumbs up

We hit 100 today, I spent the day basking under the AC, painting is out of the question in that temperature, after all, it may get brush stroke Big Grin

Not as daft as it sounded as the heat prevents the paint from flowing, thus leaving brush marks. I tip my hat to you.

I have encountered an unexpected problem forcing me to divert my attention onto a serious drainage problem.
A hole appeared in my drive that turns out was caused by rainwater drainage flowing in the wrong direction, the ground level on that side of the house sank some 8" during the earthquake 5 years ago causing the drainage pipes
to go out of line. It's a massive job to put right with a huge amount of ground work to do, time to roll up the old sleeves and get stuck in I suppose. Whistling

Oops! So sorry, Jon. Best to just go ahead and get it done now before it gets worse, I guess.
No, better not get stuck in!!!

Ugh! I hope it cools down for you. Ground work and realigning pipe is hard work and in the heat it can be a killer job. Take care not to get heat stroke!
