I'm building a playhouse for my kids... it's turning into a proper construction project. It has a sloped flat roof (about 25% of pitch). Question on roofing: the felt instructions maintain that the felt should be installed on top of the drip edge. Drip edge advice suggests it should be sandwiched between the shingles and felt. Which is accurate?

Thanks!

On the Gutter Eave Edge, the felt paper goes on TOP of the Gutter Apron Drip Edge Metal.

On the Gable Edges, the felt paper goes UNDER the Overhanging Drip Edge Metal.

When I do it,I put felt,drip edge and then felt again.I never like to put metal onto a bare deck.

I like you guys... can I take my shoes off and stay awhile? :p

My dad says Ed is right.

By gable edge, do you mean the sloped edge? I'm a Friday not an architect... I just play one for my kids ;)

And remind me next time to a.) never start a project closer to a tree than I can swing a hammer or poke a drill and b.) never build higher than my ladder will reach the roof. I'm going to have to build the upper-deck balcony before I can shingle this puppy because I can't climb up... and it's been raining on the ply for three days now :( :(

Sorry to hijack, but I was wondering how to handle this situation at the upper edge of a shed-style roof? It is neither a gutter edge nor a gable end.

Thanks
