OCTOBER - NOVEMBER 2006

OCTOBER 28, 2006
Greg has completed the
roof that covers our someday kitchen and diningroom.

Our long hours of research paid off and I'm very happy we went with this "slate look" metal roofing as opposed to the more common standing seam. The slate look works so well with our architectural style. And too, the
high pitch of the roof line shows it off to advantage.

Don't know if I've mentioned this before, but it's another of those things that bears repeating....

Having the ability to use a computer and connect to the internet on the jobsite can be a lifesaver. There have been many many times when Greg has been in the middle of a certain project and in doubt about how to proceed when the vast amount of information available at his fingertips has saved the day. We were able to get internet on our jobsite practically from the very beginning as the phone lines were already in, we had electrical, and DSL was already available.

Work on has been very very slow due to some family business...and the weather. Time just slips away from you. Greg had hoped to get this @#$%&* roof done by late summer...then early fall, and now it looks like we won't be able to get back on it until February some time because we have some more personal obligations to take care of in the weeks ahead.

It's snowing today, the biggest snow that we've seen since we've been living here, and Greg is worried that our rain gutters which aren't permanently installed yet could be ripped off due to the weight of the snow and/or freezing ice. Oh well, nothing we can do about that now. Nevertheless, we braved the weather and took a drive over to see a
virtual ice palace. So far....so good.
