Porch and Roof

Our summer jobs always seem to end up being fall jobs. This year's project is re-roofing the house. But one job always means another job has to be done first. In this case, the roof can't be done until the front porches are put on. The house, which was built before 1850, has a center 2-story section and 2 side wings that are 1 story. Originally each side wing had a small porch. We are putting a porch the full length of the front of the house. It will be beautiful, but certainly involves some tricky angles.
The new plywood has been put on this side of the middle section. Duane is on the ladder/scaffold and his brother, Den, and nephew, Ethan, are on the top of the roof scraping shingles off the other side.
This shows the same side with new plywood, but from the back of the house. The back of this side wing was shingled when we built the addition on .
Here is Jeremiah scraping shingles off the roof.
Here is another view of the 3 guys scraping shingles off this side of the main section of the house.
This is Duane's brother, Den.
This is Duane's nephew, Ethan.

Those shingle scraper things work great on scraping up tile and linoleum, too. Just ask Jeremiah! :)
