Show and Tell Friday

This weeks show and tell is our house make over project. We (I say we loosely, it was actually my Husband and Dad who did all the work.) finally finished the roof. The next step will be to paint the house. Most of it is scrapped and primed. The colors we picked out are cream with a slight yellow tint with burgundy trim. We are very excited to be almost done.

This is my Dad waiting for another set of shingles. We had to replace the whole front facing of the roof which took up more time. Andrew our 8 (9 on Sunday) loved climbing the ladders to help the men folk.

Here you can see the front facing is done...we found were most of the bees nests were at. My poor husband was stung pretty bad yesterday. The shingles are brown.

Below are the colors we have picked out. They are the closest I could find on the computer. I can not wait to be finished. We are also replacing 2 doors. You would not believe the deals you get if you wait for spring and summer to pass. We did not do this on purpose but a lot of supplies go on a deep discount to get rid of them. But if you do wait you will not have a lot of choices you may if you bought them early. But the Lord has provided the materials we have and we are happy with them.
