Metal Roof

The garage roof is almost finished and the house is getting started:

We chose a metal roof for several reasons:
  • It reflects the heat in the summer
  • It is much more durable than shingles -- especially for weathering hail storms, which we experience a lot
  • It is the best surface to catch rainwater from
Don had prepared us for a screw down application, which isn't as nice looking as the standing seam. But, when he got the bid back, the standing seam was in our budget. And, for that we are grateful!

We put up a bird feeder a little over a week ago and have started attracting some of the locals:

We've also seen Cardinals, Chipping Sparrows, Chickadees, and Titmice in the feeder. But, the smaller birds are so fast, I wasn't able to get a good picture.
