Roof is sheathed

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 3:22 pm


Well the weather put a damper or progress for a bit, but the roof is sheathed and awaiting its steel finish.  Good job, Ed Sharkey! 

We have some last minute discussions with house designer/brother John on roof colour.  The colour we want, a rich chocolate brown, turns out to be different than we expected; we consider galvanized metal, dark green, soft blue (well only Marianne considers that) and finally agree on tan. The steel is ordered and will arrive next week. Without Dennis, though, who will put on the steel?  A conversation with Scott from the local lumberyard results in an experienced roofer who agrees to finish the job.  We’re looking forward to being able to work under cover while it rains!
