Battens are up
Last Thanksgiving we were jack hammering and removing (by hand) the slab of concrete in the backyard. This holiday season we are re-roofing our house. Seems like all our big projects happen around the holidays.
Yesterday, the crew put up felt paper and battens (the metal roofing will “float” above the plywood) finishing 1/2 the house. The supplies were delivered at 6:30 am, the crew arrived at 7:30; however, the boss with their supplies didn’t arrive till 10:00. Folks in the neighborhood are curious as to what type of roof is going up because the batten grid sure does look odd on top of the felt.
The crew won’t be coming today because they have to go to a funeral, so work on the roof won’t start up again till Tuesday.
