Auntie Kacey was willing to watch Scout in the morning, and dear Busha watched her in the afternoon. I am so, so, SO grateful for all the help with Scout. Al came by for a few hours again in the morning (Alan, you've already clenched your title. You just want to secure it further?) and helped make some last cuts for the final roof repairs. Once Al left, B and I began clearing off the roof, ridding it of debris and nails. That was my first time on the roof. Brett advised me not to look around too much because I would surely want a second story. Check out the view! He was right, I did find myself longing for a second story. But I'd quickly remind myself of our ceiling nearly falling through, and think...nah. We're good.
On Saturday night the guys placed all the fascia board...with their headlamps. So, Brett and I leveled it, and secured it further.
Pure (exhaustion) elation at a finished project. We are more than ready to hand this roof off to somebody else, so that they can finish the job. The roofers are coming today to finish it up! Yeehaw!!!
You are getting lovelier and lovelier. Thank you for not letting us get swallowed up into the attic through the scary boards.
