Leaving & fixing

They started fixing the joists and taking off the roof yesterday morning. Holy crap, it sounded like they were going to come through the ceiling at any moment. But I’m happy that they covered and moved my plants, so they didn’t get smooshed by falling roof debris.

Since the dumpster guy was 7 hours late and the shingles delivery about 5 hours late, they weren’t able to get much beyond repair and scraping done before the rain came yesterday. When I got home, they had the roof covered with blue tarp. Though that totally wasn’t the roof color we picked out 😉 , it gave us a different perspective: since the tarp hung down, the sky looked bright blue at all times. And we couldn’t see so many trees.

Today, they pulled up to get back to work as I was leaving for work this morning, since the rain had stopped, and TCB reports that they’re nailing on the new shingles. Hooray! I’m looking forward to sleeping under our new roof tonight.

  1. Are you documenting this transformation? Will you get some new insulation too. Did that get wet?
