The Roof

So I arrived home from work tonight about 8:45pm and found that Brian had decided to re-roof part of the garage. We had a lot of wind last week and it blew a bunch of shingles off the west side of the garage roof. Apparently (unknown to me), Brian spent a summer helping a buddy (Tyler) in North Pole roof his parents' house. So, Brian decided that he should fix this little problem. Turns out it was a BIG problem and he had to replace everything, including the plywood.
How handy is Brian?! What a catch! What a mess...

Sorry I wasn't there - I could have guaranteed that the project would have been done in twice the time!

Brian's in the shower, so I will answer for him...although he is yelling that you would have been more than welcome to be on the roof while he supervised. I think that maybe there should have been more thought put into safety. Ryan, would you have considered safety first? Thankfully most of the scary stuff was completed before I knew what was going on. Crazy.

Love, Mom & Dad

those bickmeier boys tend to do these type of unsafe things first, then explain later. :P now, more importantly, he is for hire?

in response to mom and dads comments, I was thinking that since there was nothing new to look at on the Bickmeier blog, I might as well work on the roof.
In response to Laura, yes I am for hire.

I was actually just back up on that roof we did last week (and will be again tonight). It's holding up unbelieveably well - we did a good job!

Now if only I can get my dad to quit cutting holes in it! Ever since retirement he's been on a "home improvement" kick and, well, you know my dad...
