They Took the Roof Off

I've got some catching up to do. Deliveries, trucks, a dumpster, scraping, pounding, friends, ladders, pounding, and more pounding. As the construction continues, so must the stories. If you like construction, you're in for a treat. If you don't, well, you're in for it anyway.

On the 25th of April, John and some of our friends took the garage roof completely off and built a new one. We had a great time watching their progress.

Removing the roof has begun.
Here's my inside out view.

Noah had a front row seat.

There was sawing and hammering....

heaving and kicking....

until it was gone.

Micah and John S. got rid of that last stubborn beam.

Clara, the house, was calling, "What about me?" Hold your horses, Clara.

Eli and Nathan did their own project of carrying wood back and forth.

Nathan looks like a little construction worker. Sometimes the boys would climb up the ladder to get a better view or sneak in a couple slides.

Isaac and Josiah did some of their own work. Hey! That's MY Pibb!

Ahhh! Refreshing.
The roof must go on.
No roof vs. old roof
Don't drop it!

Hi John!

After they finished rebuilding the first half of the roof, they removed the other half.

Tah Dah! The bones of the roof are back.

There was much measuring, cutting and nailing.

They wrapped up work at dinner time. Literally.
Thank you for all your hard work, Ric, John S., Mike, and Micah! Awesome job!
