Step One, Step Two – Ooops

We were all set to get going on our remodeling project. We had a CONTEST for a redesign of my quilting/office space and Jean came up with a winning design. All was good to go.

Step 1. We picked out some nice bamboo flooring at Home Depot.

Step 2. The new flooring was to be installed in the triangle room over the plywood floor.

But, then the rains came and we had a leak, a big leak in the room.

We called in our favorite neighborhood roofing contractor, Bob Stone Roofing. Bob went up on the roof.

Yes, it is time to get a new roof. It’s been 25 years and that’s a good life span for a tar and gravel roof. We’ve never had a major leak. Bob’s bid is $6,000. Reasonable, I think.

Now, Step 1 is a new roof.

Was the leak BEFORE or AFTER the new floor?

Just keep thinking of how marvelous it will look when it's DONE!

Oh, goodness. Not that it's much comfort, but I'm glad you found out about the leak before starting the remodel. The bamboo flooring you picked out certainly is pretty.

Yikes! I hate when that happens! A band-aid won't work? A pretty blue tarp?

We finally put a new metal roof on our place a year and a half ago, and now we have been able to work on the inside projects! New carpet, tile, etc. Its amazing when you start one project how others suddenly appear. Dont know if thats good or bad, but we've been having fun with the upgrades! Good Luck on yours...your place is beautiful!

All I can say is OUCH. But -- hey, you won't have to deal with another roof for another 25 years.
