    I lined felt up with bottom of baton on one side then flapped a lot of it over other sides. Used felt nails to pin it then put baton over top and ran stanley knife to trim flush with bottom of baton. Ok?

    How about corners? Fold them? The felt nails are too small for corners .

    Can you sit on all shed roofs? 20211119_155542.jpg 20211119_161328.jpg 20211119_155634.jpg 20211119_150452.jpg 20211119_150353.jpg 20211119_145041.jpg

    That’s generally what’s done.....the felt edges will deteriorate in a while though where the folds are, and some Acrypol will delay things.
    As for the roof, it’s probably strong enough as a shell structure but I wouldn’t go tap dancing on it!

    The strength of the roof depends on the support structure. A friend of mine once climbed on to the roof of his 8' x 6' shed and promptly fell through because it was OSB board and only supported at the ends.
    My 10' x 20' has end supports and three triangular mid supports. I safely straddled it while I nailed down the felt.
    What support does your shed have?

    Yes he survived, just had a few bruises, but swore he would never do it without checking in future.

    I guess make sure there's nothing sharp underneath just in case so you'd only land on the wooden floor

    Any technique to putting in those little felt nails? Too short to hold while hammering, I ended up pushing them in with fingers then hitting in

    Use a pair of long nose pliers to hold the nails.
