House Post: Roof Porch Begins!

Of course, we are replacing a roof at the precise wrong time to do so, according to global lumber markets, but…we don’t have too much choice in the matter. Project costs have gone up 30% since we first agreed on the work in February, ouch.

It’ll be good to have done, though.

Here’s some before shots.

Here’s one sort-of in progress photo. It’s been POURING all weekend, so the contractor just did a little bit of opening it up and a lot of measuring on Friday. You can see that he took off the fascia trim to make sure he was matching it, and also get a sense of what was underneath the roof itself. It doesn’t come through in the photo, but there are – no exaggeration – at least a dozen wasps’ nests underneath the roof. YIKES.
