    Owww I feel like going up to it and giving it a hug [​IMG]
  2. OH, that's adorable! Is that blue glass in the front (sun and moon shapes)?

    Something that immediately jumped out to me: Is there flashing under the roofing material in the valleys of the roof? I would worry about that leaking if there isn't something to direct the water away from those seams. We just got done repairing water damage to our house when the roof leaked because of flashing that wasn't installed properly. . . so now I see water damage (or the potential for it) everywhere!!

    Quote:Yes, it is blue milk glass. Pretty huh!?

    Oh yes, that is why I replaced the whole roof instead of repairing it. The flashing was bad on the first roof and you can see the damage to the house in the 'before' photos. I have the felt paper under with flashing on top and a bend shingle on top of that. Then the two sides come down over all of that! I also extended the roof/flashing a couple of inches beyond the wood. The first roof had the tiles and flashing lined up with the wood. I'm no roofer, so we'll see if it's water tight. It's getting tested as we speak!

    Quote:Thank you! I have four hens. A SLW, a BO, an black australorp, and an americauna. My SLW is sitting on 6 eggs right now. If they hatch I should get two delewares, two red blue laced wyandotte, and two lavender americauna/white leghorn crosses.

    I love the business idea. I would be so happy to stay at home all day and putter....hey wait! I do! Here are my hens and my SLW sitting on her eggs. She covets the yellow plastic easter egg. It's her favorite. We don't mess with it. Maybe I should put a marshmallow peep in it.

  6. Quote:Wow, that detail is so unique. I love it! I'm in the PNW too, if it can stand up to the deluge we've been getting lately, I'm sure you've done a great job!

    That is great, I love it. You are very good. I went through Craig's list today, in the two closest communities, but came up empty handed. You have found a great one.
