Roof & Doors

December 18th:
Just as the framers were finishing their work, Thanksgiving, and more importantly, deer season, came to the mountains. After a few weeks of inactivity, work has resumed on the house. Door installation started the week of 11-Dec-06, and the roof installation began 18-Dec-06.

January 7th:
There are 5 new pictures of the roofing progress below. Thanks to a snow drought and abnormally warm weather, the roofers will probably finish "before winter". Good for us, bad for the ski areas here.
