Roofing the Workshop and Cupola

My husband John Plocher has finished the roof of our former-garage turned model-train-room-and-workshop. He has been working on this project to rebuild what the termites ate, between job interviews and his obligations as a member of the OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB). Our neighbor Felix Quintero is a professional roofer, so John worked with Felix on the roofing.

This week all projects are on hold while John and the OGB attend CommunityOne, meetings associated with Sun’s huge JavaOne conference in San Francisco.
