162 miles one way? Phew! That would have been a $240 distance surcharge if I'd done it. Are there really so few inspectors in USNY?

2x162 = 324, not 334.

It was 334 miles one way.

I was working but not inspecting. My son, my nephew and I did a tear off and re-roof for a friend. I should probably re-think my "anything for a buck" philosophy.

"Honesty in Architecture" doesn't apply here.

I suppose the idea of a column composed of pebbles having no architectural basis didn't really enter the individuals head when they were building those things.

Your eyes are better than mine. I thought it was brick till I enlarged the photo.

Jeez Chad,

You already knew that I'm incapable of doing fourth grade math, did you have to remind me?

So, if I've got it right, that's 668 round trip. Wow, for me, that'd be a distance surcharge of $990 and way too much saddle time; my back'd be a mess by the time I got there. I'd probably tell 'em to fly me down, put me up in a hotel and buy all of the meals and pay all transport to and from the airport before I'd go that far for a job - any job.

You've got some stones there Mr. Fabry.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

I've seen lots of pebble course work like that in rural communities, especially in well established amish areas. There are always some greek details around the front entry and windows, with simpler detailing on the sides. I've never seen one quite like that.

Chad I've gotta agree with Mike, I'd be sore after the drive let alone after the roof gig.
