New Roof

We've officially had a new roof for a few weeks, but I haven't felt like blogging about it. I actually haven't felt like blogging about anything.

Here's what the house looked like in September when we had the home inspection done. The roof looked worse than this when they finally came to tear it off. With our crazy winter storms, we lost many shingles. We prayed with every storm that we wouldn't get a leak. We even had a few roofing companies call us to make sure we weren't getting rained on inside.


Here's our after pictures. We decided to go with a black roof so it will match whatever colors we decide to paint the house.


We also got the structure by our pool roofed. We have been testing out outdoor couches for this area.

P.S. can anyone tell us what this is called? We know there's a name for it, but for the life of us we can't think of it.

As you can tell from this picture, our next project is the fence. Our last storm blew the fence into our neighbors pool.

NICE! The new roof makes the house look great! I remember when my parents had a "shake" roof and we got a new one, it was like a NEW house! ~
