Porch and Roof, Part 2

This picture is from the roof looking down at the porch decking (actually just some plywood laying there temporarily so you can stand on it). But for those of us who don't like heights, it helps us appreciate the work they're doing up there! (By the way, if you click on a picture, I think you can see it in a larger format).

These pictures are not in order! This one is of the roof that you saw plywood on in the following post. Oh well. Here the roof is stripped down to its original old boards. The men cut a whole in the roof to put insulation in the attic area. This attic is not accessible from the house.

They put this pink styrofoam stuff that has a corrugated shape to it under the boards for airflow, then replaced the boards.

This picture is taken from the highest peak looking down over the side wing (dining room end).

Here you can see all the layers of shingles at the peak. There were 4 layers, I believe (it looks like more because of the cap).

I think we should have bought stock in Gatorade! The guys on the roof go through a lot of water, pop, and Gatorade!

In this picture the side wing has been done as far as the tar paper. Then work on the roof stopped so the porch roof could be built. Here you can see the one side porch and the middle porch framework.

There's nothing I like better than a house with a front porch!
