The roof currently has a row of ‘cap’ shingles along each diagonal. My thoughts at this point is to remove the cap shingles, and either unscrew or cut out the existing diagonal rafters. The short piece of pipe is getting ‘hanger brackets’ welded to it for the rafters to fit into. The diagonals will be doubled, using new wood. I’m then hoping to do some trimming of each triangular piece of roof, and reuse them, shingles and all. If it goes to plan and they are reusable, then simply recap the four diagonals and the roof will be done.

I did some fighting with rusty filler rod, and the already rusty flat plate and got the hanger brackets welded together, next step is to get them welded to the short pipe.
