What do I see when I look out my window?

Falling shingles, from all the men on my roof with what look like pitchforks digging away.  Yes, we are having our roof redone.  It has four (yes, you read that right) layers of shingles on it, so they have to tear it off before they can begin to put the new shingles on.  I'm sure the neighborhood is breathing a collective sigh of relief that we are finally doing something about the state of the exterior of our house.  It is step one in a long process of making some hard decisions about this house.  Since a house with a leaking 4-layer roof is a liability, it is being fixed first.

While the boys are finding it somewhat interesting to watch from the inside, as the weather gets nicer (as they promise it will), I see many trips to the park since no one can play outside while they are working.  It could be a long two to three weeks.  But I'm glad it is getting repaired... and it will be done early in the summer... and then we can work on fixing the water damage inside...

I've always felt that the purpose of our big ugly house is to provide contrast for the other less ugly houses on the block. It seems a shame to wreck the curve by fixing our roof. It might hurt the self-esteem of the other houses.

This seemed like a busy week for you, especially since you were fixing the roof. Did you replace it with shingles as well? You can refresh yourself by walking at the park while they are fixing it. Goodluck! I hope you post pictures after everything is done.
