Inching Along



Today! The next phase of shingling will be ATOP the scaffolding rather than squashed UNDER it. Whoee!!!!!!!!


Today was 37-degrees. I thought: Is it possible to work in such weather? Or will fingers freeze? The answer proved Yes, and No. While dressed warmly and with a scarf, no fingers were uncomfortable.

The outlook for at least the next two days though is grim. I am certain that 30-degrees WILL result in unhappy fingers. And, look at next Sunday! Bathing suit weather!

    Dolly and I look forward to seeing you in bathing suit while sitting atop scaffolding doing shingle work. Hey, this could make the calendar!

      I wouldn’t want to scare children and small animals.

    It’s great to see this side of the house shaping up so nicely. I’m especially impressed with your ability to flip the old shingles over and reuse them… doing so will produce a much better result than simply replacing all of them. Lookin’ good!
