The Friends used torch down (modified) roll roofing, (without the torch), as it lasts about 4 to 5 times as long as normal roll roofing. The scale house, outhouse, and coal bunker in the north yard in Chama are also covered, as well as all of the outbuildings up on Cumbres Pass. Hope that helps. Most of the booths will get the same type roofing material as the regular roll roofing doesn't hold up and tears, exposing the roof.
