This is an update from August 8 through
The Amish crew who put up the trusses and
decking offered to do the roofing.
On August 21st about 7 a.m. 15 men showed up after driving
through rain to get there. It did not phase them and all went to work on
different sections of the roof with some putting on new shingles and others
tearing off the old roof. Actually the occasional rain that persisted
until about noon kept it cool and they were very careful on what I
considered a roof too steep for humans. And now it is wet. If it had been
a sunny day like the previous week they could not have worked past 10. The
cool, cloudy weather made it an ideal day so they kept up the pace and by 3
in the afternoon they had packed up their tools and heading home.
Another sight to behold. What a huge relief to have the
Again it would have been such a great video.
It was fun to watch as they all finished each section and
moved toward the East end of the house. Kind of like being funneled into a
smaller and smaller space and only took a few minutes for them to tear off
the remaining section and start with the new roof.
