Day 6 dawns…and guest goats are wandering the neighborhood.
It’s all fiddly-bits today…except for that little ‘ol thing sticking WAY up there…I’m worried about it…the look of the tower is critical as it is the feature that draws the eye first on this house. This shingle is all about attitude and the pattern is critical. It HAS to be right. Brian (the owner of Service First Roofing and Construction) says they’ll get it right pretty much no matter what it takes.
With ten or so guys tackling all the little flashings, hip roofs, and other features, it goes fast.
Very shortly the cleanup is complete and most of the crew wraps it up and leaves. Everything but the tower is complete, or very close to it. We’ll do a walk around and they’ll tackle any issues left. With a roof this large and complex…there will be issues…but I’ve been watching the work pretty closely and there are surprisingly few problems.
The difficulty of getting the pattern right on the conical tower stumped them for a bit…it was so important that it be right that they decided it was time to call in an expert.
They stripped it, wrapped it, and tarped it against the coming rains and promised to be back Monday with the expert.
We are rain-tight! Woot!
My terrification level is down to about a 0.5. My lady (the house) is safe and protected…now it’s just cleaning up the look.
Even better…my Lady (the wife) was up to traveling and arrived at the Old Vic in the afternoon.
T’was going to be a good night!
