Steel roof

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 6:17 am


Roofing is underway.  A mini heat wave cooks the steel and nails and makes it impossible for Mark and his roofing crew to handle the materials after 12 noon, so it will take longer than the expected 3 or 4 days. We hope they have a nice cool pool to swim in after work! 

Picture of finished roof added August 14.

  1. Hello Harry & Marian!

    Jeff and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time out of your work day (Sat Aug. 4) to talk to us. I suppose you probably have a lot of people talk to you about your build, but I wonder how many people just drive up, wander onto the site and strike up a conversation! I hope you didn’t mind our boldness.

    We are so impressed with what you have accomplished to date. I only wish I had known about your project sooner as I would have loved to help with/observe the process from the very beginning.

    Well, you have our contact information. Please don’t be shy to call. That’s how friends are made… We will be watching for your e-mail to let us know when you can use a hand. I would love to see the plastering part of the process, but if there is anything else we can help with, we’re just over yonder, give us a shout!
