With the fixed attic dormer.
The fellow building the apartment building behind out house let us use his ZoomBoom to help with the demolition. The men cut the roof into three sections and then pulled them off one by one.
Big scary machine!
Ben had never driven one before, but he just hopped in, played around with the controls for a while and was good to go. Ya, I know, he's great! :-)

The almost finished product. A window will go where that sheet of plywood is and we're hoping to find an easy way to take the paint off the brick. Any suggestions, let me know! And one of these days, we'll put siding up on the back mudroom.
Yes, we have a little pool, but hey, it's cheaper than air conditioning!!
