No longer will the new house be confused with an IHop!
No strangers knocking on the door at 7am expecting a stack of pancakes!
See that brown stuff going up over the blue film?
It's a roof!!
It's been 10 months since the bulldozer began moving dirt and so it has been a long time coming.
It won't be water tight around the chimney for another week or so since we've had another delay finding stone banding to go around the chimney top.
But it's progress!!
The Englert metal roofing comes in sheets and is crimped into a standing seam roof. It's their Dark Bronze color and looks like the copper roofs in the area that age to a dark brown.
Too bad that we couldn't use copper but it's out of our league price wise... we're doing good to spring for the copper gutters!
Now that the roof is extending out across the back of the house, it looks massive!
Without the porch.... (okay, veranda) it's a nice sized house but not crazy.
Add on the porch and whoa.... it's big!
