The lumber yard then delivered all the roof shingles and wood necessary for the new roof, and the work began. Luckily Michael had the boom truck set all the shingles on the roof, so no one had to carry the heavy bundles up the ladder.
We decided we wanted to build a false dormer and overhang on the roof so of course it had to be built before the roof could be shingled. The structure will offer a little more charm and a break-up to the flat roof. It will also give us a decent overhang above the front door.
I painted the trim boards.
And up it went! (Young Michael took these two shots).
this is what greeted me! I couldn't believe how much the two Michael's had accomplished.
Michael didn't want to stop working soooo.....
We went to the kitchen and pulled out the last remaining cupboards!
The half-wall comes out today and the new skylight goes in the bathroom!
I'll keep you posted.
