Roof Update

We drove out to Pittsfield, of all places, to get the flashing for the roof. This begs the question, why go all the way out there? The answer is because I needed flashing to match our roof for maximum aesthetic effect, and that was the only place I could find that would cut it to the size I wanted. Apparently these guys (Pittsfield Standing Seam) are famous in contractor’s circles for doing metal roof stuff.

Surprisingly, the drive wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. We had to go to Killington, and it’s good to know that it’s a manageable drive once ski season starts. I even borrowed KJ’s ladder and set up the roof to install the flashing, so things are already moving along, though I had to stop to make dinner, and then get ready for karate, which kind of made me crabby and whine about having no time.

Then again, what else is new? I toyed with the idea of painting while I was up there, but figure I should take it one step at a time. That flashing really needs to be done ASAP.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Thibaut Monot for the pic.

Right, one step at a time works best. First the roofing, and then the painting out there. The flashing would soon be done, and you'll all have the time to do other things.
