Last spring, the roof looked healthy and vibrant and we expected the original clay tiles to experience many more happy returns. When the Woodson’s design-build partner, The Samuels Group, replaced the windows in the original structure, they noticed portions of the roof needing immediate attention. We saw it, too. The news was sudden, but wasn’t shocking.
Last summer, my wife and I went on a date to an outdoor showing of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window. For those who haven’t seen it, I briefly will summarize: Jimmy Stewart is temporarily in a wheelchair and watches his neighbors to pass the time. He sees something suspicious and tries to solve the mystery, all while keeping the ravishing and elegant Grace Kelly (who is madly in love with him) at bay.
