Can you say.....TIN ROOF!!!

As you can see we got our tin roof on. Our son-in-law Daniel helped Richard with this. What a life saver he was. He's a very hard working young man and also one that seems to love to learn new construction stuff. I guess maybe I should have had at least 1 baby boy after all for Richard to have taught his trade to....lol, too late now. At least he has a wonderful son-in-law. I just love the pretty silver shine of the roof now.

Here you can see the tin that Richard and I put on the porch roof together just yesterday. We also painted all the rafters under the tin before we put it on. Doing that first made it much easier because then you didn't have to worry about getting it on the tin. I said we, but Richard painted the rafters and I painted the porch post. Helping him with the tin was hard but fun. He was on the porch roof and I was carrying it from the truck and handing it up to him. When you hold it up to hand it up to the roof you better pray the wind don't blow. LOL, its like a big sail and throws you off balance.
Till the next post...Love thy Earth!
