October 19 Update

There is a nifty machine in St. Michael’s front yard called a “lull” which is basically a big forklift that transports materials and people up to the roof. I would love to get a ride on the lull, but doubt that I would be covered by Phoenix’s insurance! This week the roofers have finished removing the slate from the south-facing roof; now the old wood and insulation has been exposed. Steve, one of the workers, showed me an old piece of zinc which used to be used with the copper. They will re-deck the roof with new plywood and insulation and finish the whole south-facing side of the roof before doing the same on the north-facing roof. The copper installation will be the final phase! Come by and see it for yourselves – it is fascinating.
