I blame my brother Kevin for this. Last year we were talking about needing to re-shingle our roofs. Kevin is a firefighter but also does roofs on the side. He said, “Why don’t we save some money and help each other with our roofs?” Smart idea – but there were times last week when we all (including Kevin) had some regrets.
A couple of weeks ago, we did my brother David’s roof. Last week, we tackled my roof, which has an 11/12 slope, almost 45 degrees – not the most fun. That’s over five days of roofing in my comparatively sedentary life in just over a week.
Now I’m done, and I’m hoping I can find my way back to a desk. But it’s been good. The roof looks amazing. But I’m glad to not be climbing back on a roof today.
