We don't actually have a finished roof yet - we still have to pick shingles and have them installed, along with the drip edge. But the roof now has building paper, carefully installed and tacked down. The attic is dark: no light seeps in through the hundreds of cracks, no gaps let in the sun and the pigeons that have been roosting there.
The shingles will go up soon, in the next week or two. But for the first time in two years, we can listen to the rain, and not worry that the house is being slowly ruined. Another milestone!
