The roofing begins!

While most everything major is completed in the house renovation, that only leaves the roofing. Here we go!


Vic starts the gang off with a demo on what a well dressed roofer ought to be wearing in 2009.


Pete, Paul, Rudy and Erna completely awestruck or razzing? I'll let you decide...


Wasting no time, Rudy and Paul are up high where only birds ought to be.


Vic and Ben are planning the placement of all the strappings to go down.


IMG_0954 Activity around here once more!


Pete assists Ben while the strappings are created.


Wonder if I should just get the guys to hang my Christmas lights up early while they're up there... just kidding! Trim painting comes first. KIDDING! (sorda)

Jake showed up today to continue screwing in more strappings to beat the deadline. Roofing materials are slated to be dropped off Tuesday, leaving Wednesday as the big install day. How exciting!!!

Thanks to my very generous and wonderful friends! You can't begin to know what your time and expertise means to me right now. To know our home will be safe from our wet cold winters? Man... just no words.

More updates to follow shortly!
