    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

up on the roof

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 9.58.13 AMHey guys! The day is finally here for me to reveal our metal roof to you!

2.jpgIf you can remember this post, I had enlisted your help in choosing a colour for a new roof. Most of you thought that red would vibrant and beautiful, which I agreed with. However, given that our previous metal roof stood out, this time, I wanted one that would blend in with its surroundings.

4.jpgMaybe I was playing the devil’s advocate, or maybe I was just stubborn in my vision for a weathered-looking house. Whatever the case, I am so thankful that we chose the colour that we did! 

1.jpgI think that the brown looks great here, but honestly, you should see it with the reclaimed siding that is now up. Honestly, it is absolutely gorgeous. 

3.jpgDon’t worry, the siding post will come soon. :-)))

    How exciting for you! The roof looks great. LOL. I know some would hate it, but I love the sound of rain on an early weekend morning on a metal roof.

  3. Interesting, there’s no OSB / plywood underneath? The metal roof looks fantastic. You’re going to absolutely love it. Plus if you ever want to convert to rain water collection you should be good to go. Metal is a great surface for collecting rain water.

      It’s pretty common for metal to be installed directly over purlins (with felt underneath, of course). Some standing seam products require an OSB or plywood underlayment; it really depends on the weight of the material.

      I agree that this roof is perfect for rainwater collection! I have two rain barrels (they catch runoff from my gutters) and it’s a neat system. I was surprised at how well it works.
