WEEK 21 – This is a picture of the living room of our house.
I’ve showed plenty of pictures like this before, so it may not seem that significant. But it is! Why you might ask? Well, because, though you might not be able to see it in the picture, it was pouring down rain when I took this shot, and what you definitely can see in this picture is that the floor is dry!! And that’s because this week, we got a roof!!
And honestly, given the amount of water we’ve dealt with in the last three months, this is a big day that we’ve been waiting for! I stood in the house in the rain, and it was dry. This week we can start moving towards windows and that gets us one step closer to sealed from the elements. And that means things can finally dry out, and we won’t be squeegeeing out water ever week, and our subfloor can stop having to absorb/drain inches of water. It’s a big deal!
It also means we’re one step closer to siding, meaning the saga of the siding needs to come to a present end. My husband is a saint and deserves an award for rounding up all the navy blue/dark slate siding samples in Rochester so that I could make a final decision. (Ok…maybe not all the samples available…but really, if you’re thinking you want dark blue siding, come visit us to see a whole bunch of options.) I think we’ve got it figured out…provided that Josh gets it ordered before I can change my mind!
