If you agonized with me through the large roofing project last fall, I decided to give you a break this year. This year's piece was very small by comparison, just the steeper part of the roof on the back. I got it done in three days of work. Forgot to take a completely "before" picture, but you can tell where the old shingles were from the first day's shot.
I did not get all the old mess off the roof. That's going to take another tarp and more energy than I had today. I just hope the blue tarp doesn't shred. We're supposed to get wind tonight. And of course, it hasn't been warm enough yet to seal the shingles. But I can only do what I can do, and I was pooped.
Speaking of pooped, the new section has already been christened.
The entire front has to be re-done too, but it's not nearly so critically pressing. Don't worry, though, I have several other major chores to keep me out of trouble here this year.

Good work! I feel like saying 'been there, done that! One roof we replaced had five old layers of shingles - they'd never removed any of the layers. And the bottom two were cedar shakes; it was all over an inch thick!
YAY, Joan! Looks great...hope the wind does not blow the mess down, although if it blew the mess all down in one spot , that would be helpful, I guess
Good job. I admire your ability to do anything and everything. I couldn't climb up on the roof let alone reshingle it.
That's a grand job you have done Joan or as I would say round here "Proper Job" :)
Looks GREAT! Good work, Joan. You are amazing!
You are blessed to have the grit, the determination, and the stamina, and yes, the skill, to accomplish such a task. Well done!
Ya done good! (as they say around here) Nice work. Not sure what you've had for weather today. Here it has been very strong winds with some rain.
