Roof Is Finished..

















Well, the roof is done..My son-in-law did such a beautiful job..He would come out on days off from work, just to do this for us..There is still the deck to change, but that will be done in the spring..Our concern is winter and snow sliding off the roof..now we don't have to worry..He built it so strong, you could ride a truck up there..The first three pictures, he needed help with the ice/water paper..It is very sticky..So hubby/daughter helped him..Wouldn't get me up there, even though it isn't that high..Yesterday the shingles were finished..I bet some are wondering what all the white is. Six tons of pellets for our pellet stove, they will be moved in the barn..Another daughter/son-in-law/grandkids will help with that job..
Well, that is the porch so far..are we pleased..

Till next time, keep looking up..

I am loving your porch and new roof. When I saw the pictures I wondered if that was you on top of that roof!
I just know you are glad it is done.

I agree with you about climbing up on roofs. I will not go up on any roof. It msut be a relief to have your roof ready for winter.

You have a lovely house. It looks very big! Compared to my tiny abode it does anyway!

We're thinking of doing a metal roof.

I love metal roofs, they are perfect for snow slide and I'm sure you get a lot of that up there! It looks fantastic, you must be happy to see it completed! My dad has a pellet stove too, his front hall has about the same number of bags stacked right now :) This is the time to buy them though - cheap, cheap, cheap!!

That looks great! We just got a brand new roof this past month too! Ready for all that snow again!
