We are finally getting our new roof!
As soon as the roofers took the old shakes off it started raining! They are up their now at 10:00 PM trying to nail on the tar paper while it pours rain and lightning flashes all around. I hope that thin paper holds up to the rain. They still have about half the roof to take off before they can start getting the new roof up. Hopefully the color we chose will look good with the house. The old shake roof had hundreds of wasp nests, spider nests, and moss and I am glad to get rid of it. Hopefully I will have a new roof next week so I can post pictures of the color we chose. This isn't really a thrifty post since we are paying to have the roof done, but we are doing the clean-up ourselves which has saved us some money. All of the mess you see in the picture below, was our job to clean-up. It was actually fun working as a family. Hopefully it will still be fun when we clean up the front yard tomorrow.
