The roofing material arrives


First thing this fine AM, a big noisy but incredibly welcome truck pulled in. With our roofing!


Vic quickly worked on some strapping while things were gearing up.


See that there pile of black on that truck?!? That's black metal! Black plus metal = the most beautiful combo of words ever!


It was quite interesting to see how the truck was stabilized on both sides to allow for the weight shift to come.


Isn't that cool how that arm is folded many times over? Can you tell this is a girl reporting live? I do not know what the arm is called, but it was a good invention I must say.


This is where it got a little exciting. Especially when sitting at the window and watching that big box of roofing swing towards you.


Yikes. This is about when I scooted my son and myself outa the house.


Good excuse for another photo op anyway.

2009 Extreme - Aug on



This is my favorite picture. Look at those clouds on the mountain behind the house. Doesn't it give the picture an intense serious eerie kinda feel? We ARE talking serious roofing after all!

Later in the day, Vic and Jake worked for abit with a shower vent, then Ben showed up later to get things started.

A bigger team comes Wednesday, weather permitting, to get this new toy in place!

Wish for those intense serious eerie clouds to diminish for Wednesday please. My neighbours across the street from me are also working on their roof with half their shingles off. No rain for Wed! Cuz it's Roofing Wednesday in these parts!

Thanks again for today, guys. I cannot WAIT to see my pretty black metal! It'll match my kitchen island you know...


  1. Wow, you are one lucky girl. It's going to look amazing...

  2. LOVE the view from your roof! I'm jealous!
