    Chain Saw To Take Down The Evergreen

    “First you must find… another shrubbery!

    Freshly Shingled House

    It’s official…we can stick a fork it in.  Our roofing project is done-zo! Instead of “Roofing With The Campbells”, I should have named the series of this post “Roofing With Mr. Campbell, Angie’s Brother, And His Friend Adam While Angie Snapped Pics From The Driveway.”  But that was just too long of a title.  I’m […]
