The Roof

Wow, okay so we lost the ability to connect to the internet for awhile. Basically, the same old stuff so far: demolition! The roof has been the main project this week and we had awesome family that came and helped! Those who weren't allowed on the roof (me, being prego and all) helped with clean up and making food!

Okay so what I really don't understand is this picture:

One of the nieces was destroying the wall and all of a sudden everyone heard glass shatter so they called me in and we discovered a window, complete with glass (this picture is after the glass and window frame have been taken out). The people who lived here before us (which was about ten years ago and no one has lived in it since) added onto the house...but when they did that they ENCLOSED THE OUTSIDE WINDOW INSIDE THEIR WALLS. Wut?


  1. I'm actually not surprised at all. We have (pause while I'm counting them) at least 3 windows that we know of inside our walls... Crazy stuff.

  2. Yup, nothing like discovering another man's home improvement ethos. Enclosing a window is cheaper than re-framing the wall, but it isn't super energy efficient.

  3. [...] 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 [...]

  4. [...] you haven’t been following along read here, here, here, and here. Oh and possibly [...]

  5. You must have seen the window inside of a window in my living-room...... If not ask your Mom, you can see the old window (that is a lot smaller) behind the new window LOL
