Final day--Day 45
Next time we have a roof tear-off:
-Ensure the dumpster is delivered before they take even a single shingle off. We hope the neighbors will be speaking to us again soon.
-Plan on it taking 5 times longer than expected.
-Plan on it costing 40% more money than expected.
-Do not assume plastic tarps will stay in place.
-Prepare for sleepless nights imagining raccoons and bats and human ne'er-do-wells entering the house through the open to the sky attic, especially should Andy be out of town for two weeks of the tear-off.
-Wonder why the 15 year old part of the roof failed while the 100 year old part was still in pretty good shape.
But also-Delight in opening the attic door and seeing Venus in the southern sky through the new dormer.
