Roofers Going Nuts, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

Due to several panels of our roof flying off with every rainstorm lately, which created a number of mind boggling leaks in our home, we have had our roof replaced. As much as I have appreciated getting that done I am so thankful that the constant 8-5 hammering and prying off of tin is over! made for some very interesting school days trying to teach over the noise and distraction. It was so funny, when they torn the old panels off, you could see sunlight coming through all of the seams where the ceiling meets the walls! Off course some places were like that after the panels flew off but when it was a whole room it looked really funky!

Off with the old...

.....on with the new!

At one point Campbell asked why there were chunks of concrete falling off the roof. I went out to check and they were having to knock off some concrete where it had been added and overlapped some of the panels they were trying to replace! Craziness!

Here is a sobering picture, imagine if this were your family's only means of transportation, it was for one of our roofers. That seat is a piece of wood.

Here is a little album of our fun with the roofers after a hot, long day of work! Oh, and guess what they wanted to drink? A cold glass of tea or water? No, they drank coffee on their breaks! I mean they are working on a tin roof in Equator heat and they are drinking coffee!!

The photo album moves fast so you may want to pause it on the bottom and flip through the pics on your own, you can also click on the pics to make them larger! Have fun!
