How To Repair A Roof Shingle
Rosslyn dockhouse re-roofing project underway
What's happening with your dock house? What's happening with your boat house? It's staggering how closely folks monitor the Rosslyn dockhouse! In the good way. Nice to know that so many people feel connected to that hundred year old structure jutting out into Lake Champlain in front of our house. For many, it's become a symbol of historic Essex, a visual "welcome sign" or signature symbol for our town. This is certainly the case if/when you arrive by ferry, and we appreciate the importance of maintaining the structure for posterity to enjoy for at least another hundred years.
So what's happening? Why are the windows out? Why is somebody walking around on the roof? Unfortunately the old cedar shingles on the roofs are rotten and leaking. So we're removing the old roof and installing a new (but virtually identical) replacement. The new cedar shingles should arrive soon, and the copper drip edges, roof cap and flashing are being handmade at present. The windows are out to enable the top sills to be repaired, and to pass debris out the apertures without breaking anything. The scaffolding bracket visible on the north side is obviously temporary, enabling easy/ier access for repair work and to catch all of the old shingles before they fall into the lake. The silhouetted carpenter in the window is also a writer, currently working on a memoir about Alzheimer's. For inspiration, he has pinned a photograph of E.B.White working in a garret much like the second story of the dockhouse.
Keep your eyes peeled, updates and additional photographs will be posted soon.
Mihelcic Barn MM30
Sitting next to me at the lunch counter last week, I couldn't help joining a conversation about RR bridges, Seemed the man next to me worked al around N CA repairing the electrical RR bridges (the moving ones) and crossings. Oh how I'd love a photo 'ride along' with this man! We continued talking. Lo and Behold! He lives in Willits and is the owner of the barn I and others photograph so much that we have worn paths along the outside of it's fence. Pete says this was a sheep barn (low profile and a platform inside) built about in about the 40s. He has tried to shore up the walls, to no avail. It all started to collapse when the acidic sap from the huge oak trees eroded the roof shingles, allowing water in.
He talked about being at a closing nursery and seeing all the daffodil bulbs for sale. He and his wife bought a truckload full and, using a backhoe, planted a whole row bay the fence - and here they are!
I love this barn.
