Pound, pound, pound!

My little kids are sleeping through this madness, thank heavens. This is not the way I like to spend thousands of dollars (I'd really love new couches), but it was definitely necessary. I really wish I would have taken some "before" pictures. This is the back of the house, almost done. Hooray for the man working around the chimney. That's where the water was coming in.
The front is torn off, but still needs shingles. Hopefully it will be done in a couple hours. It was in such bad shape, they had to replace some of the lumber.
Here's the old roof (in the dumpster)! YAY!

Congrats? Not sure if this is something to congratulate someone about but I am sure that it will look great once it is done!

Houses are a never ending money drain aren't they?! It is always something...
