In my last post, I was focusing on some of the items that we would like to complete before year end. This past weekend Dave and I completed the last portion of our exterior front entry.
It is incredibly flat looking, right? Did someone cut its nose off? Oh yeah….that was me!!
That roof was a rotten mess, so out with the old rotten, yucky roof and on with the new. I’ve said it before…what’s with the offcenter roof line????
- 2 4×4 – cut to 9 feet
- 2 2×6 8ft
- 1 2×8 8ft
- 3 2×6 12ft
- 4 1×5 8ft
- 2 12ft steel panels
- flash sealant
- drip edge
- lag screws and roofing nails
- 2 4×4 post base
Just over halfway
Right before we called it quits at dark
12 total hours of work- mostly done by 1 person. I helped a little…so maybe it could be counted as 1.5 people??
Putting on the last details
The best part is the day after we finished….it rained.
For a weekends worth of work and $260 we were able to get that extra layer of protection for the front door and those of us that use it 🙂
It has a nose again!!!! hahahahaha

Looks great! We are starting to plan our 2017 home projects too. I kinda miss your stars though – will you add them back?
I haven’t decided. I put them on the back of the house for now.
