Saga of the Roof - cont'd

To update:
This morning when the roofers hadn't arrived by 9:30 am, DH called their office. No answer, so called their cell number.

Apparently, they are running behind (well, yeah!) and won't be able to start yet. So, when can they start? Not until next Tuesday at the earliest! That's another five days from now.

Meanwhile, we have this huge dumpster sitting in our driveway, blocking the garage and there are piles of roofing materials on the front lawn. I'm sure the neighbours are very happy.

It would have been nice if they'd at least called to say they were delayed. Is that asking too much?

That's rough, why does construction & repairs always have to go so off track?

The roofers have finally started. It's a weird thing having them on the roof -- sometimes sounds like they're going to come right through the ceiling and land in my lap!

No word on the windows, yet. :(

Hope the work got done and that you are happily vacationing by now.

Thank you for thinking of me, Wenda. Still here and no, the roof is not done, but I have high hopes (high apple pie in the skyyy, hopes).
