It took three months (and I officially hate banks now), but we finally got our new roof!! I love it. :) We went with a metal roof because it was cheaper (since they didn't have to pull shingles or redeck), will last longer, has an energy star rating and looks great too. :) I just wish it would rain now so we can see what it'll sound like. I love the sound of rain on a metal roof. Now the bank is insisting we have 60% of the repairs done before we can have the second third of the money (and the roofer hasn't even been paid in full, makes no sense to me), so we have to fix the hen house, tool shed and fence before we can get the money to finish paying the roofer. Then we're probably going to have to pay for the horse barn out of pocket before they will send the last third of the insurance money. Like I said, I really hate banks right now. So it'll probably be another three months before I get my new barn. :(
However check out this gorgeous roof. Now I just have to figure out how to get rid of the ugly green paint that the previous owner put on the grout. I can't decide if I want to sand blast it or just repaint it a different color . . . oh and sorry for the mess. :)
So what do you think? The color matches our old barn (probably go with red on the new one too). I was thinking of staining the wood around the windows and the supports to the front porch a dark brown color. I'd probably paint the green part above and below the windows the same color. The grout I can't decide if I want it a natural color or if I want to paint it dark for the contrast with the light stone. Any ideas guys? I'm not known for my decorating abilities hehe.
