For those who've followed the saga of That House here on Making Dreams, we're getting a new roof as I write! It's been a long saga getting to this point and it's long overdue; there were FIVE layers of shingles on the roof. The surprise to us is that the original shakes are long gone, but the nailing strips are still there and not rotten at all even though several roofers assured us they were. We've had to have the rafter tails shortened to get rid of the rot so our eaves aren't going to protect the house as much as they did, but we can worry about that later. The important thing is to have a sound new roof.
