The New Roof Goes On

After a day or two of showers, during which our house lived under a tarp,

the last of the old roof came off and the huge bin full of all the old shingles was hauled away.

The weather cleared and the new roof began to be laid,

and the house immediately took on a brighter and cleaner appearance.

No sooner was that complete than a crew arrived to install the new black gutters and downpipes. We chose black because it will not show the mould and dirt that are inevitable consequences of Vancouver's weather. It will also match the eventual colour of the window sashes.
