Our new roof!





We just had our roof re-shingled. The roofing company came on Thursday, worked from 7:30am to almost 9pm, then came back on Friday for 3 hours to finish up. It was noisy and disruptive, but we're very thankful it's done! Check out the before and after pictures - unfortunately, the before picture is from when we first moved into the house in 2005, so the roof doesn't look as bad as it actually did this spring, but you'll get an idea of how much better the new shingles look!

That's the BEST roof I've ever saw ;)

Your house is so CUTE! I love the refinished chairs (below) - red is a groovy color. Congrats on the post-doc, it sounds really interesting. And it'll probably be refreshing to move over to St. Paul... or smelly, depending on the season :)

You are lucky to have a roofing contractor to re-shingle your roof. It looks great! Though home renovations can be noisy and inconvenient, the results can bring about a sigh of relief.

Considering all the noise and mess, it’s a good thing it only took the roofers a day to get everything done. Other contractors take about 3 or 4 days and even more to do replace a roof. By the way, I like the color of the new roof better than the old one, especially in relation to the color of your house’s siding. I think all the colors just pop more and feel more exciting.
