This is the story of before and after.
Last 4th of July when family was visiting from Texas, us old folks accepted our much younger nephew’s offer to go up on the roof and clear the gutters because they were just not doing what needed to be done.
The cabin is a tall structure, three levels as you can see, and the pitch of that roof can be a bit scary.
And while the gutter clearing produced miracles, we also discovered places that were going to need repair.
The cabin was built in 1999, and up on our knoll in the Blue Ridge Mountains that wind can howl something fierce.
It was time to re-roof.
Can you see a couple of guys up on the top there? They are getting ready to do their thing!
While I was away in Maryland and New Jersey, the cabin got a new roof!
Doing the prep work!
Making a fast job of it…and I love the look!
Luckily the weather was very cooperative!
And I have to say that I am impressed that The Hubster took as many photos as he did—I had to do some arm twisting! I wanted to feel part of the project too, so asked for regular updates to be texted over to where I was.
Working their way out to the edges!
Coming up the road..it looks awesome!
Lifetime warranty….we’ll never need to do this again!
The only hard part for me is that I won’t be up to the cabin to see this until likely JUNE! My schedule is that packed and there just isn’t time – I’ve got work to do here at home on the days I’ve got in between trips so it will have to wait.
But I couldn’t be happier! Come July 3rd, it will have been two years since Quilt Villa came to be!
On the living room floor this morning.
I walked into the room this morning and smiled. It’s coming along! Today the job is to get it together. I’m going to trim the columns all to the same length and start assembly.
Eye doc appointment at 10am – there are NEW GLASSES on the horizon and that makes me happy too. I need my prescription tweaked. My eyes are aging and I just need to see better to keep doing what I am doing.
Quilt Cam tonight! 9pm EST! Bring a project and join me here on the blog for some fun sit & stitch time!
Have a great Friday, everyone!
