New Roof Cresting!

I

I’m sooooooooo excited! I installed some ornamental cresting on the ridge of the main roof!!!!!!!! See, like in the middle? Well, I was kinda drunk when I did it, so not all the bits are quite right, but I can climb back onto the roof when sober and reposition some. Anyway, I am sooooooooo excited!

In this close-up, you can really appreciate more of the detail. Pretty cool cresting, right? I love it!

    The original roof cresters.

      Oh! That is good, too!

    Looks like something of the avian variety.

      Another good one!

    Dang it! You got me! If it wasn’t for the other posters above, I wouldn’t have realized that those were birds.

      !!!!!!

      I thought the second image would reveal that I was, as Rhonda put it, jesting.

      I was, of course, also jesting about being drunk on the roof! EEK!

        I’m sure that you would never do such a thing!

        I took it too seriously because I work in a hospital (customer service) and I was a mental health tech in the Army. You’d be surprised how common it is for injuries to occur due to alcohol + home improvement or alcohol + hanging out on the roof.

          I’ve seen those videos on YouTube: People did WHAT?

          Yikes!

            I once had a roofer fall off my roof. He was about 15 feet up. Fortunately, unfortunately, he was so drunk, he just bounced and got back to work. Yikes.

            Derek,
            As the saying goes, God protects fools and drunkards.

    You can also appreciate just how much that finial dresses up the tower.

    I would add something clever here, but I cannot top the comments above.

    LOL! Very cute! 😀

    I believe roof ridge decor was often installed to prevent birds from spending time there.

    • Ross on January 16, 2017 at 8:56 am

      Ah! I never heard that before. But it makes sense!

      Birds LOVE my non-crested roof ridge!

    I once drove by a farmhouse with multiple roof peaks on various gables. It was pouring rain. There was a HUGE vulture on each roof peak. Totally freaked me out.
