Having lived in the Great Lakes State for most of my life, moving to the East Coast was an exciting time. However, after having been here for 10 years I can freely admit that I miss Michigan. It is no longer home but it is a place where I am able to find great peace.
Although, when February hits I am quite glad to be where I am and not bracing the 5 degree temperatures.
I had planned to write more but today is a little tough as my roof is leaking. We have an old townhouse with a flat roof and it is leaking a bit. I will need to find a dc flat roof guy but haven’t started the search yet.
UGH! I will have to continue this later.
So, I have learned a lot more about roofs than I ever thought I would know. Apparently roofs are sized based on a measurement called squares. So, I have a roughly 8 square roof that needs replacement. It seems to be 100 sqft = 1 square.
Fortunately, I found a dc flat roof company who has been helping me out to understand the process and after 3 other estimates it is time to get it done. Did I mention that I hate home improvement. Nothing gets me more frustrated than waiting at home for a contractor who is going to arrive between 12-2–only to still be waiting at 2:30. So, wish me luck on getting the roof done.
Also, I had no idea how much there is to see in Washington. Now that the weather is so nice I have been spending time exploring. It is endless. So many museums, so much to see and do. Another good source for DC is here. OMG this is totally me.
