THE ROOF! THE ROOF! THE ROOF IS….

no, not on fire.

The view from the roof is SPECTACULAR. One of our roof guys is sealing the roof surface, but in the background you get an amazing view of the Catskills.

Leaking, actually.  After years and years of really bad patchwork we’re finally addressing he various and sundry leaks all around the roof.  Thanks to the final break in the cold and weather our roofers were able to start up today and get a good amount of the substrate laid, which will stop the leaks.

Sealing the roof will also allow the insulation for the third floor ceilings to be completed so they can be closed up and the rooms actually finished off.

 

So while you may not view the roof very highly (pun intended) it is a key part of the building that we’re paying some serious attention to.
