The Roof 1963

I came across these slides and thought I’d do a brief flashback to that first summer. Looking at these photos made me think that probably most people don’t take on this kind of project the first summer they are married. We waited two weeks and then plunged into it.
1. Pulling off the old roof.

2. Scaffolding to reach back roof.

3. A hoist to lift shingles to back roof.

4. Putting on the 2x4s

5. Foil–the pine boards (ceiling ) went on first but shows in a later photo.

6. Putting on pine boards for ceiling.

7.Shakes–kept damp. Note no lawn yet but ready for lawn.

8. Lawn side of roof finished.

9. Mostly overcame fear of heights–for awhile.
