The King

Our crew consists of Ryan F., Laura G., Dave H., Jeff G., Kevin S., Matt D., and Heather A.  Our job sites name is called The King.  We had no idea shy until we walked into our homeowner's Don's house.  He has everything you can think of in the form of Elvis!  Don is pretty quiet, but is one of the nicest guys in Virginia.  This week we were given the task to "gently remove" his old tin roof, add underlayment, then install a new tin roof.

The week thus far has been pretty eventful.  the first day was the day of the bee!  We removed all the tin and started to lay the underlayment, then the bees came.  Dave, Kevin and Ryan were casualties to the bumble bees!

The second day we continued to add underlayment.  This made it pretty tricky to navigate the roof, but we managed!  There are a few hols in the roof that made a few people slip, thankfully we have a talented experienced roofing crew.

Today we had a little bit of misfortune with the rain.  We had just started tinning when the lightning came.  Our house leaked a little, but Don said The King has been through worse!

We plan on finishing the whole roof by Friday.  Don can't wait to see it finished and neither can we!
