Meet the new roof. Same as the old roof.

Last year, we put some chipboard on the boys' playhouse. It sat like that through the fall, winter and spring. Now it's time to finish this project up, but the problem is that I didn't put any real support underneath it -- it's just sitting on top of some 2x4s directly. That will make it a huge pain to shingle, as it won't support my weight if/when I need to climb up to do the apex.

That means I spent much of the day taking down the two sheets of chipboard, putting up some 2x3s I had laying around, putting the chipboard back on top, then laying down some tar paper. It hardly looks like I did much, but I spent several hours doing it. Tomorrow, I'll work on shingles.

Today is Andrea's and my 11th anniversary together; tomorrow, our seventh wedding anniversary. So this evening, we're going out to Fuji Steakhouse (though Andrea doesn't know it yet). Mom is watching the boys so we can have an evening together. I'm looking forward to it.

This is going to be a long weekend for me, as I'm taking Monday off to be with Andrea and run some errands. We'll see what kind of fun stuff we can get done!
