wouldn't you know

that the wood under the roof tiles isn't looking too good.
so we're told we need a new roof
i guess we'll have to go forward, although 
i loved that patina on the old slate roof
but it is 60 or so years old, i guess it's tired
and been leaking for a long while.
so, on we go!

our guy is replacing the roof, the plumbing, 
fixing the ceilings and walls
and repairing the hardwood floors.
should be done by the time i get back from atlanta!
and then we'll paint and see what else needs doing.


  1. Well that bites! I suppose it's better to have it fixed now, though, before you're woken up at night with water dripping on your face. Smiling & Waving, Sharon

  2. Too bad. I adore slate. Nothing like a sturdy roof though.
