The complicated ceiling:
And here’s what the old beadboard ceiling looked like when the roof above it collapsed last year:
The roof peak I painted and trimmed this week:
The peak behind it still needs doing, but that’s a job for a pro — and a job that probably won’t get done until 2017.
Here’s a before pic. Or rather, a “during” pic. This was taken while the not-a-garage was being torn off and I was just trying out my first paint samples. Sorry I don’t have one taken from a similar angle as above, but I think you can see the difference, anyhow.
Yeah, parts of the house were pretty much at shack level when I bought the place. That back corner where the not-a-garage used to be is still unfinished even now (2016 project, if all goes well), but those multiple bizarre roof extrusions have been removed and — thanks in large part to you — the roof both looks and is good.
Bonus. My sweet baby boy at 14 years old:
Old, sick, and weary. But he was so happy in the sun that day. I had to take pictures, knowing they might be the last ones.
