The Roof, the roof, the roof is – missing?

Have any desire to know what we’ve been doing since early Friday morning? Yes that’s right tearing off our old roof to put a new one on. We decided to do it ourselves to try and save some money. So far so good, it’s taking a bit longer that we expected and we are having to replace a lot of the OSB boards that had water rot or damage. The roof was 20 years old so it was time. We have a summer of house repairs ahead of us I believe. We hope to have the roof papered, and ready to shingle by the end of tomorrow! We have to finish by Tuesday when the next chance of rain is. I have spent the last two days pulling staples. Hundreds and hundreds of them. The boys have done a good time of entertaining themselves and have had a couple visitors to help entertain them. Well I am sore and tired so more later!
