I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup. ~Wendell Berry

After the harsh weather last winter, shingles are loose and
coming off of the barn and the house.
This weekend I replaced the shingles on the other side of the barn
(no before and after photo - sorry)
As soon as the sore muscles heal - I have to do this side of the barn.
Positives: I know how to replace shingles and it is one less thing that intimidates me.
Negatives: It is very hard! (and dangerous)
Conclusions: Metal roofs are the way to go
and the house looks like it's going to need more than a patch job.
