Reroofing the chicken house

The old brown rolled roofing that we used to roof the new chicken coop two years ago ripped this summer. So had to go buy some shingles and reroof.

The job went quickly, even with a short rainstorm in the middle of the process, we finished in 4 hours. Couldn't have done it without help, thanks Nancy and Trish!!

I don't mind being up on the roof - in fact it is fun, but won't do it without others around.

DONE! Now the roof matches the rest of the barns!

We're having a barn painting party in September.


  1. Can I just say that it's so good to see women re-roofing, accomplishing a great job and looking so cool while at it? Thanks for the treat! Where did you learn this skill, by the way? Anyway, congratulations!

  2. In the early 1990s my first first husband and I built a log house. That is where I learned the basic skills. Since then I've reroofed many buildings. See the new barn we just built!
