After a brutally noisey day of stripping shingles, the bare wood decking is exposed

The dumpster, after 1/2 the house has been stripped.

The fancy new felt they've laid down to prep for the new roofing.

Looking nice. They'll be back on Thursday to start with the shingles, supposedly rain or shine, we'll see.

Tear the roof off the sucker

So it begins. And man, is it loud in here.

Our man Bryan says they should have it stripped today, and covered with felt, depending on how much decking needs to be replaced. I'm obviously hoping for minimal replacement, but given that it was a leak that percipitated this endeavor, I expect some wood to be replaced.   

We're expecting a storm tomorrow, so they may cover the entire roof with tarps tonight, even though the felting is usually good enough to protect against some rain. We'll see if the forecast holds out.

Coming down in bucket loads.

Listen, do you hear it?

it's getting closer. . .

Supposed to start work this week, but we'll see if the weather cooperates.
