New Roof and a Ham Sandwich

My roommate and I reroofed our house this weekend.

Well, most of our house.

Okay, some of our house.

We got about 30% done over the course of two days.

Thanks to my entire weekend being spent on the roof, you're not getting a real blog post today.

Now, I really wish I could tell you I had the boys from K&B Construction Company over and that we dined on grilled cheese sandwiches and shish-ka-billy-bobs, but they had other engagements, so instead you get a picture of a ham sandwich and some lemonade.

(I fully intended to take a picture of this on my roof, but I didn't have the energy to make the sandwich yesterday, and today it's raining, so you get what you get.)

The good news is that regularly scheduled programing will return on Thursday, but until then, me and my sunburn will be over here watching more Home Improvement clips.


  1. bahhhh TOOL TIME!!! I am dying laughing!!

    1. Right???? I love that show! I still have a thing for JTT....but there's no reason to share that tidbit on the internet. :-P

  2. Roofing can be a dangerous job. That’s why some people prefer to hire someone else to do it. But you seem to have gone ahead and did it with your roommate. And for first timers, you guys did great, because you managed to finish 30% of it in a matter of two days. How'd it turn out, btw?

    1. It looks fantastic! And we're not chasing shingles around the yard every time the wind blows, so that's an improvement.

  4. Spending your weekend, installing a new roof on your house is such a fulfilling activity. At least, your weekend was a very productive one. You guys did a great job in doing all 30% of the job in two days. Anyway, those ham sandwiches look delicious. Thanks for sharing that, Katie! Kudos and all the best to you!

  5. Well, it’s a good progress for two people doing it all by themselves. And I’m sure you were able to finish it soon after. Anyway, I hope your new roof held up nicely this past winter. Cheers!
