Well - exciting to Furry Husband and I anyway. Probably NOT so exciting for anyone else.
We get a new roof today!
For once, having aged, out-dated, old, dilapidated stuff worked in our favor! Long story short, we have t-lock shingles on our roof - they don't make t-lock shingles anymore and our roof needs to be replaced so insurance will cover it!
Of course I tend to have champagne taste on a tap-water budget... I wanted a metal roof. Furry Husband was in charge of getting quotes and talking to contractors. He found a friend of a friend who gave us a "friend of a friend quote" for a metal roof. We'll still have to pay around $1,000 out of pocket, but because metal roofs are green and environmentally friendly, we'll get a tax credit and still come out about $100 ahead.
YAHOO! We found a way to get that metal roof!
They just arrived at our house and when I get home... we'll have a new, metal roof.
Is that exciting or what?
I bet our dogs and cats livin' inside aren't going to enjoy the process..... Hang in there guys, it's only for today!
