New roof stands up to the big storm

December 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

Bob sent me some pictures of the new roof and trim this morning. Despite the very high winds yesterday, it held up just fine. The scaffolding around the chimney is for the mason, who will come later this week to build a brick surround to cover up the cinder blocks.

You can see the new trim around the A dormers and along the roof line. Very nice.

And along the gable end of the house nearest the driveway.

I also spoke to our neighbor, Rich Start, this morning. He said they got about 8-10 inches of snow, not as much as predicted. But the winds were dangerously high. He said they are feeling lucky not to have lost power.

And I just ordered our first oil tank fill up. I can’t wait until we can enjoy the benefits of second home ownership and not just the expenses.
