Roof Repairs Day 1 – January 31, 2012

The new roof covered in roofing paper.

Remodeling a house is never an easy project but it sure helps when you have people who know what they are doing. We are working with a contractor by the name of Doug, who is just wonderful. He brought two other people along with him who were – obviously – experienced roofers. Our neighbor, Danny, also came over to help move materials and do some light clean-up work. With both Jerry and I outside working, things moved along a lot faster than anyone thought they might. In fact, at the end of the day yesterday – after just working the one day – the roof structure was up and the roofing paper was on.

The new roof area divided into three distinct sections.

When we started the project I told them I wanted a vaulted ceiling in my office. As the day went along and they continued to frame the room up, it became clear that the area was large enough to make a small room. I was still pretty set on having a vaulted ceiling, but Jerry convinced me another room would be nice. He wanted a storage area over his office area, which he will get – and there was a small area over the laundry room that will work perfectly for storing smaller items. The room will be home to my floor loom, spinning wheels, sewing machine, fiber and material. I think it will be perfect.
