I know I'm supposed to be looking at the architectural elements, but I'm somehow intrigued by the split shingles. They're just so rare today, at least here. I miss seeing them.

They're pretty much only used for restoration, S. I haven't noticed them on any new contstruction.

At last. I have been trying to get on your site for a number of days (couple of weeks?). It's not just yours though, from what I'm reading.

About the shakes (is that what the wooden shingles are called? Can't remember)...anyway, I am sure that art went the way of the cooper long ago. Damned shame, but they are now probably plastic and made in china.

We have the tradespeople who can do it, JJ, but they aren't neccessarily local. A lot of roofing on the old buildings on Ontario St have been redone in copper, as they were when they were built 170 years ago.

All it takes is money...
