A Tale of Two Birds
The Story You’re About to Read … Should You Choose to Do So … Is True.
Well, mostly true. To the best of my recollection anyway.
Just a few notes on this project. What to expect as posts and articles are edited/updated.

The pass-through bathroom between two bedrooms.
The bathroom off the hall.

Working on the backyard fence posts.
Two posts were in bad shape; the fence panels were askew.
Fear not … we knew what to do.
A few videos of the roof from different sides and angles. No matter how you look at it, from any point of view, it’s not in good shape.
Boise House — Roof — Estimator Videos
Two videos and a gallery of still photos taken by Chris, an estimator for Idaho Roofing Contractors.
Looking at the air conditioner, which began spurting water.
As it turns out, that is completely normal. All is good.
