A shiny new roof - Reno day 45
So it has been a busy week with a lot happening and not enough spare time to blog about it all. So this is where we were at a week ago. With a predicted weather forecast of (finally) four sunny days and a rainy Friday for the week ahead. The roofers arrived with a deadline to get the bulk of the work done by Thursday, and they just scraped in before the rain plummeted down again. Aside from a whole lot more mess lying around,
they did also create this glorious expanse of silver sparkling in the sunshine. This was the new deck gable,
but we also had the old roof at the front of the house replaced. And of course this necessitated a decision from me about the gutter colour. Which I of course had not even allocated a nano particle of time to considering, and could I advise by tomorrow? Hmmm. (I'll share the outcome next post).
Meanwhile, while the roofers worked on top, the builders worked below to line the deck ceiling.
Suddenly, some balustrade appeared on the back landing,
And the old kitchen wall finally came down, allowing a true sense of the space for the new kitchen.
The white vinyl floor indicates the old bedroom, the boards to the right (in the pic below) show the position of the old (tiny) kitchen.
It's hard to see all the progress for all the scaffolding. When it all comes down, some time this week, I will able to properly share the absolute wonder that is the new deck.
And lastly, time for a now you see it.
Now you don't.
New front stairs coming soon. Can't wait to share the new improved version.
Thank you for all the enthusiastic comments on my last post. It is quite fun to know that so many fellow reno enthusiasts are following along and sharing my excitement at finding those long awaited doors.
