Our peaceful mountain valley has one drawback...the WIND! At times we experience strong prolonged winds which have played havoc on our roof. Our home is very tall and the days of us doing any of our own shingle repair are long gone. So after, yet again, a few more shingles took sail we decided it was time to fix the problem for good.So........our home refresh continues....the ugly old green (too small) gutters and downspouts are being replaced with matte black ones to complement the black accents of our new porch/deck make-over.
Soon the asphalt shingles will be gone and updated with a charcoal grey metal roof. Our great room wood tongue and groove ceiling soars about 27' high and now we'll never have to worry about leaks damaging it! If only we could only get rid of that log siding.....so charming to look at but a real maintenance pain!!
All the expenses we've incurred with this refresh have exceeded our original plan, but it sure beats having to move! Asheville area real estate continues to be a hot market so hopefully that will hold for a good long time until we are ready to sell.
Note...it's the middle of Oct. and there is barely any of our famous fall color...most trees still have their leaves. They say it's because we've had such a warm and dry fall....UNTIL now....it was 35 degrees when I got up at 5:00 AM and rain is predicted.
