Hey, look! The hole in the porch roof is bigger! Or, as I said to one of my friends when I stumbled over my words, "biggerer".
It's really hard to take a decent photo of the porch roof--or what's left of it--while standing on the porch. I should send my camera up on the roof with my son so you can see the progress better, but in the meantime this not-very-good photo will have to do.
The porch is L-shaped, and now the roof over the longer end of the L is gone. All that's left of the roof is that area over the front door that you can kinda see in the photo. Hopefully, that will be gone soon. We have to work around the weather and our weird job schedules to get anything done.
Our fervent hope is that, once the roof is gone, the rest of the demolition will go pretty quickly. The guys took the gutter off a couple of weeks ago, and as soon as the roof's all gone, they'll start sawing through the edges and take them out in big chunks. Or that's the idea, anyhow. The reality might turn out to be something completely different. Along the way they'll save those porch posts (which aren't old; they're from Home Depot) and the decorative brackets next to them that Mare made so we can re-use them. And then I'll have to track down Mare, who's been MIA since the demolition started, to see if he's still going to build the new porch.
