Default 24 ga. painted metal roof

Here is a job I'm tasked to make and install two 24 ga. bronze metal roofs on. I can't remember how to get the pattern for the curve against the wall on the bay window and the sweep roof on right will be installed tomorrow. I'll post pics when finished. The fascia on right is 114" across the front and 54" out from the wall to get an idea of the size. The bay is 49" on the sides plus dripedge and a 3/4" fascia board and I think almost 9' across the front, in other words there kinda large. That is 3 story's tall and the two bottom floors are 12' ceiling height.

Roof #1 done with out a hitch but the bay window top I can't remember or figure out how to layout the end pcs. The miter isn't any problem and will work fine and I can guess at the end panel, but I can't figure out how to make this to save the world. Also did five half rd dormers, a chimney cap with sides, a small barrel roof and a flat lock deck. I'm up to 27 sheets of 4 by 10 painted and 3 sheets galv on this job.

Thanks Kurtis, next time you make a bay window try to show the layout for the wall. I made the pcs. on the job and Installed them really was no problem, but still don't know how to lay out the wall portion off of the miter in my shop. Using the radius, miter, and the length of the drip I should be able to develop the pattern and lap the splits in the flange 3/16" and this should've worked. I'm waiting for that scaffold to come down and I'll go back and take pics when I measure another rd. roof window on the pool house.

I don't see that finishing out water tight. Better to remove those two panels at the transition and work from bottom to top. Don't dismiss the idea of flat seams since its an exceptional location. Sometimes we get caught up in thinking too much in the box.

The way it is now you're relying on underlayment. Not a favorite of mine.

I set all this in np-1 and using a few rivets should last for yrs. You can't really see this detail from the ground to well I hope. I'll take a photo when I go back to do another decorative hf rd dormer on pool house, scaffold should be gone.

I hope you stuffed the hollow cavity. Rain may not soak in from the top, but moisture will condensate behind the panels. The temperature delta between interior and exterior have a way of creating their own water problems.
