We are closing in on the top of the roof with this new video of slate repair. We had to rip off more than we wanted to at this time but it is all for the best. Thanks for watching!
The Mooreland House is dried in again. Kerry spent quite a bit of time nailing down the fiberglass underlayment. It’s good for the house to be dry from now on, at least under the top flat roof.
We have patched all the holes. Kerry went around and found all the knot holes in the decking and covered them with flashing metal. From the attic side the metal is brown so it blends in. We now are putting down a layer of fiberglass underlayment and the first layer of the modified bitumen roofing. Frank is glad he has a layer that isn’t going to be seen to practice on. =)
Ok, the tarp is completely gone. There will not be another. The next thing going on the roof is modified bitumen rubber roofing. We still have a few holes in the decking that we never got around to patching. Crazy that it has taken a year to do a weeks worth of roofing work.
We have officially started removing the tarp on the top of the Mooreland House! This day has been a long time coming. We put the first tarp on a year ago and it lasted for about 3 months. The tarp that we are taking off now made it 9 months. It is going to be nice to not worry about it blowing off when a big wind storm comes through.
Just wanted to throw a thank you out to our most loyal followers. There are almost 200 of you that followed us from FaceBook to our first website and then ultimately to this website. You guys helped Kerry get 2,500 views on her anniversary video. She is 15 people away from 2,000 subscribers. Without you guys to share the videos and stuff we could never grow our YouTube. We are beginning the final covering on the roof. Stick with us, we have another great year ahead.
We have officially owned the Mooreland House for one year now! Looking from the outside it might not seem like we have done a lot but… we have video proof that we have been working on it. =) Kerry went through our videos and made some new video to document the year journey we have been on so far. We tried to make the video as succinct as possible so not everything made it in. Here’s to another year!
We are very excited about our new dining room table! People were talking about how we should furnish the Mooreland House with old stuff. Well, we were successful in finding an old table. Pretty sure it is from the 80s or 90s. Not sure if it was 1890s or 1990s though.
Okay. Time to get busy again. It seemed like this trip took forever. The flat roof is going on next week whether it rains or not. The tarp needs to go.
Our one year anniversary of working on the Mooreland House is coming up this weekend. We closed on May 22 of 2020. Kerry is working on the video this week and would like to know if there is anything that you want to see a before/after picture or video of. The sooner you get in your idea, the more likely it is that it might be used. Meanwhile, enjoy a picture of the Mooreland House with a freshly cut yard.
