It took a bit longer than we'd like, but it's official. We have a roof.
Beginning last Monday afternoon (Jan 23), the roof began to take shape. It began on the west side of the house, covering up the gable with sheeting and attaching the look out (eave).
This was repeated on the east side, then the back of the house was covered, and the felt (waterproofing) was attached.
Following some improving weather last week, the gables were built on the front of the house, and the roof began to be covered up front. This took a few days.
Saturday, the roof was finished up, and Monday ( Jan 30) Mr. Pickup attached the felt. I helped where I could, and when my fear of heights didn't get the best of me. I hate being on the roof. I hate climbing ladders, and I hate coming down even more. The felt we've used this time is a synthetic material, which is more slippery and makes me even more frightened to be on it. Oh well. Thankfully the house is now covered and "dried-in". Today the windows arrive.
We'll finish up the sheeting on the front of the house, wrap it with weather proofing, and then install the windows this weekend. It's finally starting to look like a house!
