A couple of weeks ago, I saw water dripping from this part of our ceiling in the laundry room/nursery/chalk room/closet area off our bedroom. There had been a ton of rain for a few days prior, but we have never had an issue with a leaky roof before, so something needed to be done.
When we bought our house five years ago, Scott and a group of guys re-roofed the main part of the house but decided to wait to do the laundry room (I don't remember why). Luckily we still had shingles left over so it wasn't a huge financial burden to finish the job! Scott, along with some neighbors, spent the whole day Tuesday working on it. It was hot, but luckily a little cooler than it has been lately. At the same time, Grandaddy was prepping our soil to plant the fall garden! Normally the kids and I would have been out there helping him, but with all the roofing nails in the yard it didn't seem like a good idea. We will definitely help with the actual planting. Last weekend we spent some time weeding the garden and digging grass out where we are extending it.
Maybe we should let things settle inside and make our next project an outdoor one. :)
