From the road, a view of the house with the old metal roof and shake shingles removed. The old pine lathing was placed horizontally and that's surprising to me. While the wood beneath is in fine shape, the old metal roofing was rusted and the shake shingles beneath showed their age.
A closer view of the house which much of the old roof removed.
Scaffolding serves as a safety zone, I suppose, since I never actually saw the roofer standing on it. If he were to slide or slip, I suppose the scaffolding served as a brake of sorts.
Another view of the ladders.
