Well, park model, not ranch. haha But I thought it was a catchy title.
Back in April, before we purchased the park model, Harry’s main concern was whether the roof was in good shape, and how old it was. He was spending a lot of time thinking (worrying) about it, and I suggested that he just go up there and look at it himself. He came down feeling better about it, and then we went ahead with the purchase.
After that, we started talking about our remodeling plans for the place, and about a potential timeline. Even though Harry had not seen anything horrible or falling apart when he was up there, the roof was still at the top of our list, since we still didn’t have a good idea of how old it was. A lot of people in this park have had what is called a “roofover”, which is basically a roof made out of two inches of foam insulation that is placed right over the existing roof. It is guaranteed for life. We were planning to do that first thing next winter, but over a few days of talking it over, for a number of reasons we decided to not put it off. So we called one of the companies that does work in the park, and the guy came over to check out our place and give us an estimate.
The roof was supposed to be done within 3 to 4 weeks, but we got a call last week confirming the job for last Friday. We had asked the company rep if he would take some pictures for us since we won’t be back to see it ourselves until the end of the year, and he said no problem. Yesterday the pictures arrived!
They were going to build up the roof a little bit so there would be a more gradual slope between the house roof and Florida room.
One more “in progress” picture…
The finished product!
We are so pleased with the end result!
