Off-Grid Living Update

20160928_131258-01My friend Paul, at 72 years old, jumped up on the roof yesterday and took off almost all the tin! I hope I'm in half as good of shape when I'm 72.

This is day five of the "Reuse This Old House" project. I'm looking to have most of the roof removed today, leaving only the walls to tend to. I now have about $500.00 worth of tin ready to be used on my own cabin!

UPDATE: Found an antique can of Patterson's Tuxedo Tobacco. I guess this brand was from around 1906. I see them on Ebay for around $35.00. Looking online, I think mine is a old one. I need to check the tax stamp for a possible date. Could be pre 1905! Lol.
