A Tile Roof..... Just in time for the rain!

Yesterday, bright and early, the roofers could be heard hammering and cutting just outside my bedroom as I was getting ready for work.  When I left, they had one lonely row of tiles set upon the roof.  Forcast of a monsoon storm to arrive later in the day, I crossed my fingers in hope the storm would hold off until the workers were done.  As I was leaving the office some 12 hours later, a storm was coming in.  I could smell the rain (mixed with dust in the blowing wind).  When I got home, this is what I saw.  The roof on.... and matching the existing tiles almost perfectly.  Our lighting order did not arrive on schedule so Jerry and I had to do a Home Depot Run to find the rest of the parts and power supplies to be ready for the electrician.  We lucked out and have all but two items that I will have to search for today.  The storm rolled in about 9PM last night.  Lots of rain and wind.  The roof got a work out on it's first day.  Not sure what the plans are for today, but I'll post if anything new.  Happy Sewing.  Carole

  1. Very nice, a tile roof is the best choice for rain defense. They are waterproof and heavy enough so that they won't be blown by strong winds. It just needs some paint and it will be all set.
