Garage Roof and end of the roofing job!

Before the garage could be re-roofed, the cupola had to come down. Jeremiah wanted to be the one to pull it down with the tractor.

The inside of the cupola was full of wasp's nests. We've had quite a problem with wasps behind the shutters and siding, and in the roofing process getting into the house (mostly the living room and Jeremiah's room).

Here is the faithful crew working on the final roof! Duane, Jeremiah, and Den have worked so hard on this job. I even helped Duane on the first several runs of shingles on the garage roof--the ones we could do from the scaffolding without getting up on the roof.

Sunday afternoon another man from church came over to help us finish the job. Billy has his own contracting business and came fully equipped with tools and a lot of experience. Boy could he move fast on a roofing job! He and Jeremiah started on the back side of the roof while Den and Duane finished up the front side.

Here are Billy and Jeremiah on the back side of the garage roof.

Putting the cap on the very last roof. On the last day of September the roofing job was done. A big thanks to each person who helped! There's still a lot more to be done to finish the roof and the house, but having the roof done is a huge project out of the way! Hallelujah! A cool thing is that our best friends have also been building a porch and roofing there house, and they were hoping to finish their roof on Sunday as well. Not only that, turns out we both picked the same color of shingles.
The grand finale was having the pesticide company come and take care of the wasps/spiders/ladybugs/cluster flies and whatever other creatures have taken up habitation in our house! In a few days we should be rid of the wasps, he says. You can see several wasps around his head in this photo.

Was Jeremiah up on the roof with the tractor? Is he trying to be Evil Kenivel?

No, the tractor was on the ground, but in the back of the house, the garage roof comes nearly to the ground.
