i’ve been trying to think of how to show off the new roof on the cottage.
after all, we spent a month on it this summer — at least — and many many dollars.
but the truth is?
a passer-by wouldn’t even notice.
unless they drove by often and noticed us
up on the roof every day in july this summer…
we had a dumpster for three layers of old shingles;
we had ladders on every conceivable side of the roof;
and we had a home built pulley system to bring heavy shingles and buckets up to the roof with the flick of a button.
plus, we had friends.
