There are several pros and cons of being a homeowner. Being a homeowner to a 100 + year old home definitely has its pros and cons. That being said we have a long "to do" list. This past week we were able to cross yet another item off that list new roof. The crew that worked on our roof (this crew did include one female!) did an outstanding job last week. They were able to take off the original roofing, which was slate, and replace it, make any repairs (which ended up just being one) and did an excellent job of clean up. Andrew and I are beyond impressed with what was accomplished in the small amount of time. The forecast was calling for snow so I am pretty sure the crew did double time (Billy Blanks style) to get this job done. The pictures really don't give this job justice. So now that we got that out of the way, we are in the process of planning for our next project...the back yard. Andrew has been working hard all morning on the yard. At last count, there were 10 green bags on the curb for pick up.
