One Fourth of a Roof

So, yesterday they delivered our metal for the roof....in this tiny pile.  This is the tiniest pile we have had delivered...
How can this tiny pile be enough to keep me safe and dry for the next 45 or 50 years?  Really?
We needed a whole other big truck for this????

It's long, but...

That's it.  That's all there is.  For that price?????
So, today they started putting it on and got the front of  the tall part almost completed.  I'm impressed.  It was a really windy day here today.  Can you see the leaves on there already?

And the ladder?  That is the invention of our roof guy, Mr. Bob. 
It hooks over the top of the roof so you can climb up and down....very helpful.
Everyday, I can see clearer and clearer what my new home will be.   Ahhhh.

And for these rainy days, I invented the rain blocker for our generator....very helpful.

Tanna, I have a question for you. Do you remember the nice old front door I got? It didn't come with a key....skeleton kind, I'm guessing. Do you know where I might get one? Doors and windows are next.

Hello Donna, I have found skeleton keys at the hardware store, where they make new keys, but if its a fancier lock you may need an old time lock smith. Good Luck!

I think we are going to try a locksmith before I take off for Roanoke...much cheaper, I'm hoping!

The locksmith is a good idea. You don't want all those people rushing by on the sidewalk running up there and picking your lock! So you got a silver roof - that'll reflect the sun in the summer and keep you cooler. I'm not very wise, myself. I'd get a green roof; I just KNOW I would. And let me tell you - leaves on a finished roof? That's the very essence of home. LOVELY!!

Teehee. I never locked my door until I got a husband....I mean, I left the country for weeks and didn't lock my door...life was easier then. But, out there? Very little rushing sidewalk traffic or any other kind, really. Still so little that you look up every time you hear any! Love that! Green would be my second choice, for sure.
Going to talk to our local hardware store guy about a locksmith today.
