neighbors got together and rebuilt the roof on an old mans trailer. bad rot in the sheathing and frames. put it right with plywood everybody had been hoarding. someone ordered some edm rubber paint. tonight will be the rain test according to the weather people. took 3 days to get it tore down and put back.

old timer served in the battle of the bulge. on the 2nd. night we all sat around the table and he told stories that made me proud to be his neighbor.

sure glad we all got this project done before a wet winter.

good for you. My wife’s uncle was also in the Battle of the Bulge. he was one of the green replacements that got their tails kicked at the beginning. (not laying any blame so don't start on me) He took some shrapnel through his upper left arm and that was the end of the war for him. there is still a large pit in his arm from the loss of flesh.

It sure worked for everyone...for the old timer or course, I heard winter gets nasty for some.. for you guys that had a great time listening to some wonderful stories from your grateful neighbor, and for us to read about it.
Take Care, mud.

nice to see there are still people like you around. here in the hills it's real common and as a 'city' girl it took a bit of getting used to.

Each and every one of ya ought to be proud of yourselves. There's too little of that today, and what does go on, is often unoticed, as maybe it should be.
The last time we had that around here, was in the 70's old fella had a chimney fire, burnt his house. By the time he got out of the hospital, we had gathered and built him a small 3 room home. Complete with furnace, and Wood stove.
5 years later, upon his death, the oil furnace had never been started, and the annual free chimney cleaning torked him off royally! LOL
Yer a good man charlie brown, thank yer neighbors too.
