Mom and dad are hard at work every single day on the project. We're not calling it the roof project any more because it's turned into so much more than just the roof!
This portion of the roof is done - new shingles, lead flashing and new freshly painted siding.
The wood over the top of the shingles is dad's staging. He's leaving it there to make it easier to access the larger portion of the roof that still needs to be shingled.
The wall with Tyvek on it never had sheathing. It was just clapboards over studs so dad ripped off all of the old clapboards and sheathed it with pine siding and he and mom are working on getting up new clapboards. Dad was told that James Hardie siding is one of the best new products on the market and it lasts and lasts so dad got a good deal and that's what he's decided to use.
As you can see, we still have quite a ways to go.
Eventually, this siding will be painted white.
When mom needs a break from construction, she glances down for some pretty color in the garden.
The butterfly bushes have Swallowtail butterflies on them all the time! They are so beautiful!
