Shingles!!!!

We have shingles! All the new shingles on the roof! Hooray!

I missed the shingling of the porch, but was present at the shingling of the garage. The rain has often impeded the shingle process. And, in fact, the day Tyler decided to re-shingle the last part of the garage, we ended up having a large thunderstorm. Thank goodness we had some tarps (donated by a great friend in Spencer) to cover up the plywood on the garage when it was no longer protected from the storm by the old shingles.

On my latest update to the iPhone, time lapse became a new option for my camera. Tyler thought shooting the time lapse of the 1/2 of the garage roof being shingled would look pretty neat. It probably would have. But the battery on my phone gave out after an hour and a half. And, I had trouble keeping the phone steady, so the resulting video is a little…well it may make your head spin a little bit. But there are two tries and since I took the trouble to try and film them, I figured I could at least show them!

It’s lovely to have a beautiful complete roof!
