Update on the roof work, Part II

So many things to do, so little time...

Just a quick update, to make it your worthwhile being here today. Oh, shush, you know I am joking.

Our roofer, David Maret, finished laying the new roof on Saturday. It looks magnificent and it is "tight". I am told that is the correct term for a good roofing job. He'll also poke around to reinstall the asphalt shingles we lost in a last storm. Because I sure as heck am not climbing 40 feet to do it.

With all the rain, we moved the work indoors, and will work there until the rain clears up and the new doors and windows arrive. Anyway, we opened up the ceiling at the locations where we had visible leaks. Everything looked pretty good, except for one corner. This is what we found.

Funny thing is that this leak didn't look as bad as some of the others, that is it didn't show up as badly on the sheetrock. The surprise inside. I haven't touched the wood, because I couldn't' reach it, so I don't know how rotten it is and if it is salvageable. Will let you know when I find out.

Stay tuned.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
