    Hey, Ned!

    Considering the current weather - and the forecast - is your shop now relegated to a Spring 2008 project?

    Looks like you're gonna be spending the winter thinking about it! I guess then it really will be a "Dream Shop" huh?

    Coupled with the height of your roof, and your LOVE of high places*, that sounds like money well spent.

    hehe, I mentioned this plan to my mother recently, and she reminded me that even going back as a teenager, when 'someone' had to climb a ladder to swap out 4 of our storm windows for screens each spring and reverse the process in the fall, I did the task, but I realllllllllly didn't like the first step when I was coming down off of the roof. (flat roof over the front porch)
    Funny thing I drove by the old house the other day, and that roof didn't Look that tall...

    I'm hoping to get it done relatively cheap... but I'll pay what I have to. of course.

    Ya gotta think of the cost of a broken bone and the down time. Then it would be a "dream shop" until spring. Let the roofers roof and you do your thing. Wise decision.
