Up on the roof ....

The roofing guys were here shortly after 8 this morning to redo the front porch roof. It's a rolled roof with a slight slope. The picture is after they have put down the torchable roofing (they used a torch to melt/adhere the pieces together. They'll come back later to paint it silver. The old roof developed a leak over the past couple of months and some water had made its way through the ceiling of the porch. The good news is the roofers said the boards and joists are solid. It's costing about $700 but is worth it to have someone else do it since roofing is not one of my strong points -- to say the least.

My brother Stephen said he'll help when it's time to put down new tongue-and-groove boards on the porch flooring. That should be soon.

Glad you are getting that done. Now it's time for you to get the swing put up again. I don't know why you decided to take it down in the first place. ILY

I talked to the roofers today about it...they said it is safe to put it back up in any spot. We'll have to put it up again soon...I miss it.
