It's not an exciting topic, but for what it cost I should at least get a few posts out of it!
The mess, the noise, the red bucket!
And now we can sleep soundly when it rains and snows this winter. We are halfway done and we have:
- replaced 100' of rotted 2' x 10' board
- replaced 4 sheets of plywood (the old part of the roof has board under the shingles, the news bits have plywood)
- decided that the lack of paper, flashing, proper drip edges everywhere else on the roof is enough proof of drunk-ass installation the first time that we really should re-roof the auxillary roofs as well
- discovered that the original bid actually covered those 5 additional areas
- actual joy
And, for those of you who thought it took a day to put on a new roof, like I did? Going on day 6. Woot, woot.
Oh, and how could I forget. We also discovered:
- a Thomasson
The yard looking not at all fall-fabulous.
The attic, with daylight it should not have.
Birds? I'm surpised we did not have a Harvard Social Club take up residence with a hole this size.
The Thomasson? I don't have a picture yet. I'll get one. Cross my heart.
