Front Side of Roof Under Felt

There's been a lot of progress on the roof on the front side of the house. The roof for the porch was framed as part of getting ready to continue the roofing work. After some framing was added and supports to keep the foam from getting in to the soffit area, the rigid foam was added to the roof. These are 4x8' sheets of foam that are set in place and cut with a hot knife where needed. After the foam is placed, 2x4 purlins are placed on top of the foam and 11" screws are used to go through the purlin and foam in to the first layer of the roof that is already in place. Then a 1/2" sheet of OSB is added followed by roofing felt- all that remains to be done are the shingles once the back side of the house and the ridge vents are set in place. Here are some pictures as the work progressed.

In the close up shot of the foam sheeting being placed, to the far right, you can see the "can lights" that are in the roof that will light up the window wall end of the house. There is also a picture showing the lights from the ground. There are two lights on each side, hope they don't need to be changed very often.
