The shingles are on the garage roof and look great.  The flashings, windows and the skylights are all in the same color family.


The windows are going in on the North wall.  We place Ice and Water Shield at the bottom of the windows for water protection.


The Ice and Water Shield is also placed around the skylights.

The Fascia has started

Thursday June 8, 2006 - We have started the fascia on the garage and will be starting the roofing on the garage in the next few days.

Looking at the skylights from the stair landing.  The light coming thru this will be great!!!!  Looking towards the lake from the Master Bedroom on the Second Floor.  Looking thru the Living Room towards the lake side windows and skylights.  The fireplace chase on the interior.  Another view of the lakeside of the house towards the Dining Room 

The windows are being delivered next week so the exterior will be sealed up.

We have started the fascia on the garage and have moved onto the house.  The shingles will be starting soon.
