I have been anxious for several weeks now about re-roofing the backside of our rental house on the Thanksgiving break. Will the weather hold? Is there enough time to complete it? Well, after an iffy day yesterday, we decided to go for it today. We had lots of help with Tim and Josh deLacy helping and we completed the whole thing in one day: shake tear off, plywood sheeting and roofing. The fact that our current renter is a roofer helped make it go quick and smooth, especially when it came to shingling. We will wait until sumer to do the front half of the house as the shakes are not in as desperate shape. Thanksgiving was spent with the Bulthuis family at Doug and Pam's. It was a great afternoon and evening, and we were able to introduce Rob Nelson to the Lynden connection. He and his family just moved to Lynden as he has a new job at the border.
