The Roof - Staining

During August, 2003 the roof required staining.  Dustin managed and completed the project.  There is a "special" ladder from the prior owners used to reach the peaks of the roof.  The angles of the various section of the cottage roof are at perilous angles.  Lana took the following photos.  These photos will also serve as a guide for ladder placement for future years of roof staining.  The roof stain is a mixture of peppercorn and cobalt blue.  It took hours of evaluation to determine how to place the ladder for the last section of work.
