This week we did start to see the metal roof go on. It also led to more issues with the work the contractors had done that was done poorly. As the roof was installed, we started to point out these issues but tended to be rebuffed. This roof is not looking like we had hoped. Very frustrating.
Over the weekend, we also managed to get about 2/3 of the house painted. It makes a big impact, but is frustrating that we are now crossing our fingers for good enough weather to continue when if all of this had been done when they said it would, we would have a watertight, painted, and finished house by now.
The contractors puttered for a few days while not accomplishing much. They were then told not to come any more until the electrician and the drywall guys were done. Unfortunately this does not get our house finished any faster.
