The Roof is on Fire!

Not literally. We got the rest of the plywood on the house last week before My Honeypie went to Youth Conference. We also ran out of nails for the nail gun and had to hammer the boards old school. I only hit my thumb once!! We asked a couple of people we know who do roofing jobs what it would cost for them to finish our roof. One was too busy with his other projects...and the other said, "I'm not suicidal."'s us!

Yes, I was allowed up on this part of the roof. It's not like death if you get on it, which means I felt much more useful! and this way it got done slightly quicker than My Honeypie doing it all by himself. Now there isn't a bunch of water getting into the house!

My dad is back from work and was able to help My Honeypie put on the trim. We are hoping we can start the shingles by Saturday.

*Fingers crossed*

The rest of us started cleaning out construction debris from the top floor. Yay!

  1. what a great family!

  2. YOU SHOVELED STUFF OUT THE WINDOW!!!! That is epic. I'm glad it's getting so close to shingled and done, so you can move on to the next fab improvement.
