Got up early this morning and finished gluing the center pieces of plywood on the roof. Waited for another 3 hours for the glue to dry, and went back outside to continue.

I put another piece of 4 x 8 on the roof in the center, just in front of the one at the rear, and proceeded to put a bunch of weight on it as well.

I then cut my last piece for the center, that goes at the front, shown here, cut but not yet glued.

I then moved all the weight onto the next piece, which was a little over 4 feet long.

What a concept. Lol. After gluing this smaller piece down, I pulled the TPO back over top of it, and left it sit for the night.

By he time that was finished, it was dark again.

We are supposed to have another rain event tomorrow, so that will probably stop the progress on the roof for a day.

Getting closer to the next major gluing event.

By the way.....

For those who want to duplicate my efforts...

Here are all the weights I used for holding plywood down.

Batteries, oil, water jugs, paint...

You can count all the pieces so you know what to use. LOL!!!

Yea, right.

Finally late today the weather cleared up, the sun came out, so I went up on the roof and removed all my weights, and this is the last piece of plywood in the center, which is now glued into place.

Wahoo!

I still have a couple of minor things to touch up before gluing the TPO down, but the bulk of the work is done.

Did you feather sand the outer edges of the last center row of plywood to prevent a wear edge of the TPO?

Depends on what is trying to be accomplished at the time. I have welded in steel framing during single digit F temperatures. Definitely not the most comfortable doing that.

Here's a map of most of US and Canada, with the red dot for a general location, not exact.

Tonight is supposed to be in the lower 30's F. Then this coming week in the 60's and 70's during the day, with night time temps in the 40's and 50's somewhere.
