The roof is complete! The expanse of roofing tiles is glorious, and it defies raindrops to do their worst.

Well, not their worst- I’m sure they could find a way in during a lake storm, but barring a hurricane I think we’re good to go!

In case we’ve forgotten, we’d better do some before and afters. They are the mainstay of the blogosphere, after all!

I feel the Grindstone Pioneers would heave a sigh of relief that the church has a new topper. They are a constant presence around Grindstone Corners.

There is activity across the street as well. Captain Aron G. Peer’s house made of Grindstone got a beautiful facelift. It gave me a good feeling to watch the work on this piece of history. It was done with love and care, and with strong hands. Just like the original must have been built. That’s why the benevolent ghosts of the many souls who toiled and triumphed here are so omnipresent.
