Won't do any good. My RC helicopters don't have cameras.  :)

HA! Funny world- I have a brick chimney I plan on replacing with a wooden chase when it has to be raised (new roof will be considerably taller). In other words, I want my chimney to look like a chase and you are going the other way.... :-)

Thanks Brian.

I'll go up top and get some pics of the finished roof. I'll show y'all the screw ups too.

Now that the flashing is all done around the chimney I'll be installing brick panels on the chimney. It's not really a chimney, it's a chase around the woodstove vent that I made to look like a chimney.

I like those old tv shows.  None of this shaky cam s :censored: t.  Reminded me of Ma and Pa Kettle.  Sometimes we pile into my truck and go to Fredericksburg and it's Ma and Pa Kettle go to town..  And yes this has nothing to do with roofs.

Well now, that was entertaining! Thanks Rich!

My salesman wasn't nearly as attractive as that (black and white) blonde though.   >:(  I am glad that he didn't try to kiss me though.

It's been a couple months now, can we get updates?
 
Conrad,
How's the roof holding up? 

Brian,
What happened to your "housing adventure"?

Thanks!

On my end, mostly waiting.... waiting for drawings / plans so I can draw permits and begin. The top of the building has been reinforced more than sufficiently to withstand any <reasonable> wind or weather, not sure about any record amounts of snow though. Still hoping, probably foolishly now, to have a new structure up before Jan 2016 (note: not anywhere near completed or even sided or shingled, just in place and dried- in).

So far so good. We've had our first snow of the season last week, ~10" of very heavy very wet snow. The snow is gone now but we weren't home for the thaw so I don't know if the snow slid off in big sheets or not.
