Monday roof update.


Cool, clear weather at last! I got home from work on Monday to a hint of destruction around the back side of the house. Josh and the crew were on site and still making noise.

The plywood we put up at the corners seemed to work quite well. Most of the junk is contained in a large heap right at the corner. There was also a quantity of overflow on the deck.

Man, this looks like fun, hey? These guys are earning every penny of their wages, and I'm glad that they are available to do this job!

Josh and Dave were busy putting OSB on the southeast corner. I helped for a while by cutting some of the sheets to fit the angles and hoisted them up to Dave on the scaffold.

When they left at 7:15 this evening, they had this corner ready to shingle. Josh claims they will have the job done tomorrow and it will probably be late when they get done.

Northeast corner nearly cleaned off, a little OSB and some shingles and it will be buttoned up! I'm not looking forward to the cleanup, but it will get done if we keep after it. I'll give you some photos of the complete job in a few days......

I gotta go, Carlo
