Oh no, don’t let the rain come down – my roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown! I thought of this old song while I was watching them put the roof on our house today – knowing that we were supposed to have a thunderstorm later in the day (which we did – complete with hail!). In our case – the roof isn’t even on yet — so I really wanted it to be complete before the end of the day!
Pat (my hubby) spent a lot of time taking pictures of the entire process — lifting the roof piece with a large crane and putting it in place where the men nailed them into place. They will then cover it with plywood and I think that by Monday our roof will have its shingles!
We went back later and walked through the house and can see where everything is going to be located. We had one moment where we thought they were building the house wrong because we thought we had a double window in the front – but it turns out that because we didn’t get a full front porch, we only get a single window. Pat thinks it’s because the structure can only support a double window if there is a roof overhang with the porch to give it more support. It doesn’t really matter – that window is for the guest bedroom and we have seven windows on the back of the house – plenty of windows to wash!
It seems like every day there is a lot more done on the house – and there should be since we are supposed to move in July!
