Roof, Siding, Paint….Oh My!


It’s coming along folks!  The roof has been replaced, we already like it so much better.  We were super impressed when the workers got started right at 8am and when Brian met the siding guy at 2pm later that day they were done!  Wow!  A whole roof in 6 hours.  He texted me a picture:


The siding is in the process of being replaced.  They’re removing the rotted/water damaged fiberboard siding that was on there and replacing it with Hardi-plank.  Expensive, but worth it.

That should take a few more days and then they’ll prepare the house for painting.  After that they’ll get the new gutters up and we should be good to go!

We had quite the rain this weekend and the roof showed no sign of leaking.  The only casualty so far was my poor Japanese maple :(.  The top of the tree got taken off, so we’ll need to have it replaced.  Am I the only one that gets sentimental over plants you’ve planted yourself and watched grow for a year or two?  Other than that it’s been smooth sailing.  Now if this wet weather would clear out so they can finish up the siding!

We’re hoping this project will be done before October 14th when we have some friends coming to stay with us for a few weeks!  Otherwise, I think it will be chaos around the Lowther casa.  I apologize for the infrequent updating.  Life’s been busy.
