Last Monday afternoon, when Johnny and I visited our home that is being built, we discovered huge piles of wood on the property. I blogged about it here. Next to that pile, was this blue pile.



Johnny explained that this is sheeting for the roof. Johnny has built houses and he says that he has never before seen blue sheeting for the roof. Hm, I wonder if the builder knows about blue Monday?



BTW: Only the ends are blue; the remainder is a normal wood color. Wednesday, I'll show these in position on the roof.

Happy Blue Monday!

How exciting to see the progess Sally! Hope it's done early for you!

Boo-Bah said...

Well, it's a pretty blue isn't it. I bet you are just itching for your new home to be completed. I can't imagine what it would be like. I have lived in the same house since 1972.

Baba's Special Babies said...

Good morning Sally. this is a cool looking stack of "blue " sheets for the roof of your new house!!!It is so much fun watching daily the progress made right before your eyes..enjoy your day..
Hugs, Baba

LV said...

Some things are just worth waiting for. At this stage, it should go faster. I need a lot of redoing at my place. I have been here since 1964 and have had to do very little upkeep. I assume the builder used good material when building. I am not a mover and will be here till when.

claudie said...

Hello Sally
I have seen sheets with colour, but it's usually an ugly orange or yellow. The blue is right up your alley for sure.
Happy Blue Monday as we watch your house appear before our eyes... can't wait to see the finale.
Love Claudie
xoxoxo

Sherri S said...

Isn't that neat that the builder picked out blue just for you!?! I'm looking forward to all the house photos.

They definitely must know about Blue Monday, and they wanted to be featured.♥

Knitty said...

How appropriate for your home!

I hope the construction progress remains on target. It is fun watching it come together.

Happy Blue Monday!

gengen said...

Nice entry for today...Mine is ready too. Happy Blue Monday...

jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I am so happy to be on my computer this AM. Your blue is showing progress for sure. I think the construction process is moving pretty fast. Don't be surprised if at times it slows down. Drying in is important, so that phase goes faster than other phases. I can feel your excitement and I am happy for you.

Hugs, Janne

Terry said...

I bet you were surprised and happy to see blue sheeting. I take my camera with me where ever I go looking for colors. My Hubs thinks I have gone crazy.

Sounds like your house is well on the way, How exciting for you.

jeanne said...

Oops, Jeanne...silly me.

JLS Hall (Joysweb) said...

Well, it's a nice, summery blue - sort of reminds me of swimming pools and beach umbrellas. Maybe it's a Florida thing. The house looks like it's coming along really quickly, but I know it probably seems like it's taking forever.

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

It's exciting to see the progress of your home coming along, isn't it? Happy Blue Monday.

Blessings,
Sandi

dana said...

How exciting to watch your new home "going up"!! I recall the thrill (and sometimes agony) when we built ours almost 5 years ago. What a bonus for you to see the lovely blue sheeting!! I'm pretty sure we weren't so lucky on ours!

Have a great week! Dana

It was very thoughtful of the builder to provide you such pretty blue for your Blue Monday.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Sally,
I don't usually leave terse comments in reaction to other people's comments on my blog, as my visitors will attest to. I just tried the link and it works. I don't know what you missed, if anything, but I am a busy person and I don't always have time for perfection. I thought this was supposed to be fun and not a homework assignment that is graded.

I hope you have a good week.

Clif said...

Wow! A roof my favorite color. At least around the edges. I'll be eager to see the next pictures.
