What a great surprise!
Hi all! I have been here a couple weeks doing my latest project on the log house. The house is 2 story with full shed dormer on the 2nd floor. I just set the 2nd story windows and put a 5-V galvalume roof on the back porch that is a simple shed roof off the back because I wanted a place to hear the rain. Well, after lots of help from you guys, I got finished with the roof just as the first drops of rain from tropical storm Lee hit the roof here in Ky. The house is situated in a clearing in the woods with tall trees all around, maples and poplars, oaks, etc. I sat down in the chair on the back-porch to listen to the rain on the metal roof, oh wow! love it! Then I decided to go upstairs and make sure I had closed all the new windows, half-way up the stairs I heard it, and I realized oh boy! you can hear the rain as it hits the top of the metal roof as well, and upstairs is where the 3 bedrooms are. I walked thru, grinning and looking out the new 2nd story windows at the treetops all around and realized that hearing the rain on the roof from up there as well as seeing all the treetops is like living in a treehouse. Oh wow! I have built a treehouse paradise. I hadn't thought about getting this added benefit. Sure makes all that hard work worth it. I may never come down.
