Homestead Update: NEW ROOF

I’ve been alluding to a recent “large project” and here it is! No more disgusting, moss ridden, droopy tile roof, sans gutters with water splashing all over the ruined siding – we’re all 35 year asphalt and gutters, baby!

AWESOME, right??? Especially awesome is the other side of the house where the eaves were majorly drooping. No more saggy eaves for us!

Also, the chimney ‘box’ was totally rotten, so they ripped off a bunch exposing the stove pipe. I quite like the look and we plan on adding ‘stone work’ when we re-do the siding. I’ll also paint the ‘corbola’ triangle bracey t hings on this side white to match teh trim. Can you picture it? Dusty blue house with white trim? It’s going to be so lovely….. some day. For now it is at least DRY!

  1. Hey Pocket Pause,
    Thanks for sharing the update and photos from your new roof project. Looks like your covering is in much better shape and as you say – keeping you dry!

  3. Looks great! I think getting rid of the chimney box was a good move, the new pole looks so much better to deal with.

  4. This house update images look nice. Especially I like the other side of the house where the eaves were majorly drooping. No more saggy leaves at all.
