Increasingly Happy Homeowners

This may be one of the most boring photographs I have ever posted here. Unless of course you are the owners of the home with this ever improving roof! Our wonderful roofer has stripped the old layers of shingles off the worst of the five surfaces. New plywood was placed over the original boards, followed by the layer of roofing felt and then the new shingles. True to his promise, despite heat and humidity, he will have this side ready before the rains come this weekend.

Speaking of this weekend, our niece Carrie is marrying Al on Saturday! We’d appreciate it if you would send a little dry energy toward Tropical Storm/Hurricane Hanna. She’s headed up the coast toward Rhode Island and nobody likes wedding crashers, right?

Hope your roofie's managed to get it all done in time!! And everything of the best to your niece for her wedding tomorrow - I hope the storm's died down a bit by tomorrow. Sure it will be the perfect day for them, regardless!! Enjoy it, hope we get some photos :)

Hi Sue -
They finished the one side this afternoon and set the staging up for the other side. They'll be back Monday to continue with the project.
Keep sending those good, dry thoughts Hanna's way! We're still hoping for a "window" to fit the wedding in between the bands of rain!

Hi DMM -
We feel lucky. We've waited a long time for this - truth to tell, too long! Not only that, but we love our roofer! Maybe he'd enjoy a trip to Australia...
