The new shingles are now tucked under the huge curved cornice. The last row will sit atop the bottom edge of the cornice.
The left side of the cornice suffered damage from a 1999 fire, and the decorative swirls were lost. Behind the cornice was burned wood, which I replaced. Were the missing swirls in the basement????????
Maybe! I hauled the Magic Box-0-Bits up to the scaffolding and…
…gadzooks! The missing bits are back!
Squee!!!!!!!! Few things give me greater pleasure than being able put lost bits back!
I still have to attach the bits properly, and some judicious caulking will make everything look as it did when new!
