Roof completed a couple hours ago!

Will begin putting up a custom 9ft board on board fence in @ 2 weeks.

Very happy with the craftsmanship/quality my contractor/builder gave. It is VERY typical and customary for roofers to use Air Hammers as it is quicker and less labor. These guys hand-hammered EVERY nail (thought my roof was gonna give in!) up there. Reason being: It secures each shingle more securely and will not penetrate the shingle through causing likelihood of being snatched off with high 60+ winds we experience here. These particular ones are rated up to 130mph winds. More info here if interested: GAF Roofing ? Timberline HD Shingles - Timberline High Definition Shingle Shingle Features (http://www.gaf.com/Roofing/Residential/Products/Shingles/Timberline/Timberline-High-Definition/Timberline-High-Definition-Shingles-Features.aspx)

I chose the Barkwood it's kind of a Chocolate color which works well with our bricks!

Looks good. I need to do the roof on my house next year. My brick is similar to yours. Yard looks great. You must spend alot of time landscaping.

Hate weeds myself and I like to keep a nice lawn. Just had one side of my fence replaced and the contractor brought his dog with him one day which pissed on my lawn and actually burnt patches in it. Didn't know dog piss could kill grass until now. Just laid down some fresh top soil and new grass seeds yesterday to fix it up.

You said you're going with 10 ft fencing....that's really high. I don't think I've seen a 10 ft fence around here. I went with 7ft with a section opposite my patio that has 1 ft lattice on top of the fence for extra privacy.

I got lots of pictures...haven't uploaded them to my computer yet from my camera but when I do I'll share some. It was a great vacation, nothing but good things to say about the place. Only hassle is having to use bottled water for everything except showers. So you have to brush your teeth with bottle water and keep your mouth closed in the shower...lol

I know exactly how that feels man, it's the same way when you visit India. But I'm glad you had fun and I'm looking forward to the pictures!
