Day 2: tearing up the garage roof etc.




So, Steve hacked away at rotten boards and patched and replaced a bunch and covered them with fresh plywood then finally, just as raindrops began, got the 'ice shield' down, which is a rubberized material that is useful under shingles. Shingles you say? There are none to be had in the county this week, and hopefully supplies will arrive soon....I guess people in the Ithaca area are having a lot of houses and roofs built, despite national trends....at least the work is sealed against rains. Next he has to build new columns under the north side of the garage, as it is slipping downhill towards Canada....
