Traditional Roofing Magazine

Joe Jenkins, author of "The Slate Roof Bible," publishes a nice magazine called "Traditional Roofing Magazine." His book is awesome, so when he asked me to write a short article for his magazine, I was honored to try. To my excitement, the latest issue of the magazine (with my article) arrived in the mail last week. (I can't help but to think of the scene in "The Jerk" when Steve Martin gets his name published in the phone book.)

Joe Jenkins makes .pdf's of his magazine available for free on is web site, so if you're interested in the story of our slate roof (or of other slate roofs!), you might want to check out his rag... Traditional Roofing Magazine. When you get to that page, you can browse all of the articles in that issue or jump straight to my article.

Wow what a beautiful home you are building! My dad is Hussein and he has told me so much about you, your family and this amazing home you are building. I have read your blog and what a process! You are a very creative person with many skills. It is great you are sharing this with everyone. We look forward to seeing the results! Take Care, Nicole Loehr

The house is coming along nicely.

Nicole,

I hope to meet you some day. Tell your dad to bring your family over the next time you visit him! Some of the stones in his outdoor fireplace are from our farm. Have you seen it? It really turned out nice. Maybe I'll post a picture of his fireplace on the blog. Thanks for the kind words.

Marc,

Glad someone understands the reference to the jerk! "The cans... They hate the cans!!!" Thanks!
