disaster with the new house.
#37
Up north here a lot of people are going to metal roofing.. Up here it is typical to have 2 to 3 feet of snow on our roofs, but the problems here is we do get a lot of sun but the temps are so cold that it warms the shingles up at the bottom and then just freezes and ice backs up causing shingles to rip.. I had my son and nephew on our roof to check for soft spots and damage, it will make a winter or two and then its time.. A person could put the 20 or 30 year shingles but its really the labor that gets you, id prefer metal and never have to bother with it again...

We spent the day at the other house, I rewired some and replaced all the plug ins and light switches and boxes in the 2 smaller bedrooms. My back is punishing me now, even though I took my old sweet time doing it. The boys are going to dry wall the 2 bedrooms in the morning, this will make one side of the house complete except mudding it. They took the rest of the kitchen cabinets out and replaced the floor that had more water damage due to incorrectly install of the dish washer.. Another $100.00 in just 14 ft of floor and new insulation.. I never realized the cost of this kind of stuff, no wonder it cost so much when you have some one else do it.. But it's coming together now and hopefully no more setbacks.....
