Fireplace, Shingles and Soffits....oh My!

Today was a busy day 
at the ranch.

the guts of the fireplace
arrived in this
flashy truck.

Here it is in it's new home.

A big truck load of shingles 
also arrived 
now there are piles of shingles
all over the roof
just waiting for
Emanuel and his trusty assistant
to put them in place.

Here is the groovy truck and 
the groovy thingy 
that gets the shingles from the truck
to the roof
with ease.

Ease is what's it's all about these days.

Easy does it.

Notice anything different here?

The men have installed the facia board
around 2/3 of the house and
have gotten the support boards in
so they can put up the soffits

Hope that happens because
Brian is coming out to paint them.

They need to be in place before he can paint them.

they may, just may get 
the rest of the supports up for the back porch
and start laying the floor .
Not the real floor,
but the base floor,
the floor that holds up the 
composite flooring we will be using.

 Maybe even the stairway into the basement.

I am giddy with excitement!

Don't the facia boards look nice?

All is well.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
