Do You Want Some Fries With Those Shakes?

They've started pulling off the cedar shake shingles on the South side of the house. The entire side will get a new set of shakes and any old shakes that aren't totally destroyed will get re-used on other parts of the house.

...in the name of preservation...and by preservation I mean cost saving.





And this is the view from the attic looking out. This was a little disturbing.



I wasn't expecting to see that much daylight.

Nor was I expecting to see the bat that wandered in through the gaps in the wall.

Time to change my pants.

Bats & bees?!? What a week! Your house is looking great on the outside, very nice!

Wow--that is a lot of light coming through. It's sometimes amazing when you start to disassemble a house; things don't always look as solid as you think they should (although they're perfectly fine).

The house is going to look amazing with new shakes.
