It’s been a busy two weeks at our home with several different crews working hard in the intense heat to repair damage caused by the storm on June 29.
A wonderful crew of roofers came on Monday of this week to re-roof the back side of the house. They started with the shingles on the main part of the house and finished the week working on the addition. People tend to say bad things about roofers but these guys were delightful.
The view of the yard from the roof is too pretty not to share. I will restore the empty part of the flowerbed to the right of the picture after I’m sure there will be no need for a truck to drive through it again.
Today was sanding day. After this man left, I vacuumed the floors, walls, and windows and then scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees. Someone may mess it up on Monday but at least some of the dust is gone. That stuff gets everywhere!
The roofers left some equipment here so they must have a few more things to do. These guys worked so hard and we are so appreciative that they were able to take care of our repairs so quickly. Our contractor is A+ and if I were to ever build a home in my area, he is who I’d call.
~The family room needs to have the crown molding put back up and I’m sure some caulking will need to be done.
~We haven’t asked if we are responsible for painting or if our contractor will have someone do it. I have a feeling that this will be a job for us.
~New HVAC needs to be installed. We are also going to replace the unit for the main part of the house because it’s been on its last leg for several years.
~The tree guys have to come back to take down two trees who we feel could be a future danger to our home.
~We need to rebuild the fence that the tree partially destroyed.
~The shed needs some minor repair.
~Our poor yard will need some major rehab that will have to be hired out to repair damage from the trucks.
~Mr. SP now can finish the bathroom project!
It feels good to know that things are slowly getting back to normal around here. I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend with no banging on the roof. It was a pretty noisy week!
