On Sunday afternoon, we did the initial prep work on the latest stage of work on That Darn Roof. The weather was nice enough as long as you never got out in the sun; however, the roof is getting lots of sun (which is good because we want it dried out), and thus it is much warmer there than in the shade. We couldn't work more than an hour or so at a time before having to take breaks and cool off.( Messy detailsCollapse )
Because I'm here for three weeks, and because the forecast is for more weather like this, we're trying not to break ourselves by working too long at once. Monday afternoon's task, after I'm done with Day Jobbery, is for Lisa to go up with the leaf blower and try to blow away all loose debris, such as pine needles and dead moss. If we're really lucky, she may be able to apply the first layer of Gray Goo, that being my name for the first coat of roofing sealant. Since we have errands in Stayton Tuesday afternoon (such as taking my van to be diagnosed for its two different problems), getting the roof goop in place would give it a full day to dry before the next step of the multi-stage process.
I can understand why the roofers wanted $15,000 to repair the roof. Current Mood: working
