31 Days of Green Acres - Day 19

Welcome!  This post is one of a 31 Day series.  If you'd like to read the other entries, please click here.

We didn't actually begin work on the roof until November 20th.
Pushing it, I know.

From the outside it didn't look "too bad".


Okay, I'm fooling us all - it looked bad.

 Cheerful (and experienced) workers always welcome at Liberty Farm!

   Oh, so much dust and debris!  A couple of these farm kids had some respiratory sensitivities.  Respirators were required for a good portion of all our projects.  They have a dedicated bin in our tool room.

It was fun making a mess and throwing stuff off the roof. Yes, yes, we kept it clear of people below.

Now that's a fine looking manager perched on  the window!

Yup, this is what caused the problem - a poorly installed sky light.

See what I mean?

Oooo, the dads got all the fun - it didn't even shatter on the ground.  That made clean up a little easier.

Okay, everyone, that's a wrap for today.  Supper's on us, and will you please come back tomorrow?  And, when we give prayerful thanks at this evening's meal, we'll pray for clear skies tonite since there's a moon roof (gaping hole) under our feet.

Next morning was mild and sunny.  Gift.

The workers remained cheerful...

and teachable.

Surveying our work and offering thanks to the crew, Weekend Farmer Husband calls it a wrap.

One down, 999,999 to go!

Thanks Nester for hosting a host of other bloggers for 31 Days!
