It turns out our roof was damaged by hail, so the insurance company is replacing it. The puppies are terrified of the noise, but fortunately it won't last too long--if the weather will cooperate.
Like St. Nick, these guys are quick, quick, quick!
After one good, sunny day when they got the whole back part of the roof done, we've had misty drizzle that makes the roof pretty slick. But these guys keep on working anyway. They have fun while they work. Occasionally I hear a whoop or holler or shriek, and I cringe in case it means someone fell off. But so far it's just been good spirits, thank heavens!
Hardiepanel, that wonderful paint-only-once-every-seven-years cement fiber siding. It costs a bit more going up, but it saves in maintenance and painting in the long run.
As long as we've got these two handy guys around, I'm going to take a good look and see what else needs doing!
