Dormers for the Old Girl Part 1

  We added on to our house a few years back and had lost two windows from one of the bedrooms upstairs.  As a result, it was no longer a bedroom, it was an abyss of blah.

Our north slope roof still needed to be shingled so it was decided that we would build twin dormers, creating floor space as well as a window for the bedroom. We set up scaffold and started the gruelling task of stripping shingles.
Safety boards were put on the roof so we could continue stripping

The big step was cutting into the roof....YIKES.....What the BLEEP are we doing. 

 Not so bad.  Now to cut out the rafters.  

That's a wrap.....literally!
Hope you join me for part 2......coming soon!

  1. Crikey! You don't fool around and you make my small craft projects look silly. I remember when The Welding Man and I would tackle large projects (building a new deck the day before a family BBQ) Kudos to you for envisioning and going forward with this upgrade! I hope all goes well!

  2. Thanks Ann. Haha. Building a deck the day before a get together is pretty daring also! Hope you have followed along as we are almost done!


Cheers to great words!
