A new roof


We need a new roof.   Blah, there I said it.

We need to work on  a lot of things but the roof takes precedence.  So, about a week ago Mike sent me down to Frankfort Building Supply to pick out the right green shingles.  I did.  Nice green.  The next day when they delivered the green shingles I said to myself: “terracotta colored shingles would be more interesting looking”. Obviously that conversation with me came too late.  Darn, why don’t I ever think just a tiny bit quicker on my feet.
The guys have been working on it since Tuesday and it’s coming along nicely.

For the ladies in my audience, heehee

I must say, I am impressed – I cannot get up higher than the first rung on a ladder before I  shriek in panic and my heart starts to beat like crazy.  That actually is a good thing now that I think about it because this way we hire that job done      😉

  1. I think the color green is the better choice.

  2. Ugh, I have a new roof in my future too. I am amazed at how fast those roofers work. Our neighbors had their roof completed in 3 days!

    • This one needed everything replaced or put into place. Things were missing all together, because, apparently it’s cheaper if you do only half a job. This whole house has been built like that, grrrr…
      Where ever they could spend a dime instead of a dollar they would.
      Our roof will take 10 days and they’re working 10 hour days.
