Just about a year ago, our neighbors next door got a new roof, which meant I had a front-and-center view of all the action. Then a couple weeks ago, I had another opportunity to catch some roofers at work on the house up the street.
Now it’s our turn. Roofers showed up on Thursday and Friday for the bulk of the work – tearing off all the old shingles and prepping for the new. Singing and bantering among themselves, the large team of roofers went about their work more cheerfully than I would have expected, given the precarious and difficult work they have to do. Even though the temperatures were only in the low-60s, I’m sure it was still hot up there in the blazing sun.
I set my up stool across the street to sketch as much of the action as I could, but they moved fast. I also caught a worker (at least his feet) reinstalling our kitchen skylight while Greg watched. I preferred sketching outdoors, where it was quieter!
