A Roof!

These pictures were taken over several days time that show the roof going on.











Notice how he is strapped to the roof as a safety precaution.







Finished! Now it needs tar paper, inspection, and then shingles.





The saleslady said we should be in by December.
The builder said by November.
Johnny says the middle of December. We'll see who's right.


Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is the gracious hostess for Outdoor Wednesday. Participants post pictures of anything that they might find outdoors.

Goodbye September!

Hi Sally--it's great seeing these photos of the progress on your house. I could never be a construction worker up on a roof no matter what safety gear I used. I'm so glad there are people out there who love doing it. I hope you are in your new home in time for Christmas.

Hugs,

Cindy said...

Yahoo, Sally! It's getting closer! And you have blue skies there too. You'll have to have a virtual tour of your home when it is complete.

Andrea said...

Congratulations. You will have to keep us posted on the progress and we will see who wins the "move in" month guess. After all, it is always a guesstimate.

Blessings,
andrea

So things are really moving along! Hope the November date is the correct one (builders should know, right?). Those shots of the roofers are great - a little nervous-making, though!

Definite progress being made! How exciting!!

Darlene said...

OOOOooo look at your home coming right along!!! I am hoping the builder is correct and you can be in your new home as soon as possible!

Knitty said...

I'm with Lorrie. I can get woozy just looking at pictures of people in high places.

Have you thought of writing messages on the studs? We didn't find anything interesting when we remodeled our home, but I left messages on some of the uprights in case a future owner does remodeling of their own.

Charlotte said...

How exciting. Reminds me of when we first moved here. Ours was the first house completed on our cul-de-sac. We watch all the others being built and of course would make a little tour through them when the workers were all gone.
I hope it's finished in November.

I am so excited for you, Sally!! I want to wager the end of November, but I hear the electricity and plumbing is the longest.

I remember when the Summerhouse was being built. I watched most of the process and when they lifted the walls, my heart skipped a beat. Amazing how things are built and the talent of those builders!

Wow, Sally, It's beginning to look like a house now! I'm very happy for you.

It's really starting to look like a house now! I think you're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Mary said...

You are at the point you can count time left in your temporary quarters in days. How nice! I hope you are having a wonderful day.

LV said...

It is finally looking like a house or home now. I would say you will be fine for Christmas.

Charlotte said...

Hi again Sally.
I just gave you an award on my Scottsdale blog. Hope you don't have too hard a time getting the blog to come in. I'll be glad when you get a faster internet connection. I know how frustrating that can be.

Hello Sally, your new home has a wonderful design. I say December if you are lucky. I hope I am wrong. It does seem like they are moving right along.

Sally, your new home is such a pretty style. I love that beautiful entry. I'm really looking forward to seeing the inside when you get moved in. (I bet you are too!) laurie

jeanne said...

Hi Sally,I also wondered why the sheep wore covers on their bodies. The sheep cannot be shorn if their coat is wet. It takes a whole year to grow their coat and it is imperative to keep the wool clean and dry before they are shorn.
Now we both know. I will add that info to my post. I am leaving this post up for tomorrow. It took hours to post it and I'm giving more of my friends a chance to visit. I also added a link to the Mt Bruce Station website.

Hugs...Jeanne

I wish the builder would be right but I doubt it. I think Johnny is the one that may know. Regardless, it's looking good!
