First major house project: new roof! We got a surprise message from the home owners insurance company that we got when we bought the house (in january) that our roof was in such bad shape that they couldn't insure us. Mind you, the inspector said we had 1-3 years left on the roof... Regardless, we scrambled, got a new insurance agent, and then waited for the weather to calm down and warm up before we did this. R was able to get the roofing material through his work, so we did as much of it ourselves as we could!
