Tuesday we got our new roof. They came at 7:30 in the am and were up there banging would have packed Miss E and I up and left for the day, but I was completely blocked in and I would have had to ask all of them to move their vehicles & the dump truck, so we just stayed in. It was a very long day to say the least, but our new roof looks amazing! We got an architectural roof and it looks so much nicer than the old one. And the best part is they finished it in one day!

The siding got finished this morning. They were here yesterday and had to come back and finish this am, but I am happy to say that is done too! We still have gutters to replace and some more minor things, but the big stuff on the house is done!

Miss E's room is still all messed up, all of her furniture is gathered in the middle of the room still, except for her twin bed, which is still in it's normal spot so she can sleep in there. I can't wait to get that room back to normal. Anyone who knows me knows about my OCD and I freak out a little every time I walk in the room. 

The kitchen window is still broken, but luckily we have double paned windows, so it's just broken on the outside.

Our insurance adjuster is AMAZING! Since Darryl is doing the tree removal himself(the insurance only pays for trees that caused damage to the house, truck, and Shyla's pen), it's looking like we should be completely covered and not have to come out of pocket for anything(well, we will have to be reimbursed for some of the things that have already been done). This is a huge blessing since we have about 100 trees down and it was going to cost about 10,000 to get them all taken care of. Our front and back yard is going to have to be completely redone( I can't even begin to explain what they look like at the moment) and sod is not cheap. So this is really a huge weight lifted. 

It's probably going to take all summer, but it's going to look amazing when it gets done=)


  1. Have the repairs been finished? Good thing it was summer that time. You were able to tend to your roof without anything troubling you. I hope it's done now and serving its purpose well . Cheers to Miss E, too! :)

  2. All the repairs to the house have been finished, we are still working on the yard, but hope to have that wrapped up in about a month. Thank you!

  3. Hi there, Meagan! Can I see the result of your house renovation? Assuming that all the makeover tasks are done, your house must be full of joy and laughter! Say, which among the repair jobs that you had to go through was the toughest? =)

  4. It’s been almost a year since you got that new roof. I bet it endured the four seasons that passed. A little piece of advice: try to inspect your roof every once in a while to check for defects and any problems. That’ll definitely keep you from hiring contractors and repairmen. =)
