M. and I had picked up the rolls of asphalt roofing from the supplier the previous evening and covering the roof was relatively easy, with me rolling out the asphalt across the roof and Ushikoshi-san following along behind with his amazingly fast impact "tacker" (a staple gun with an attitude). The final step was to add a couple of laths across the covering to stop the wind lifting the edges and ripping it.
