    and it won't help much because the sun only hits the south for a little time during the day; there are lots of Douglas fir very near the house, including the largest one here, a truly magnificent tree that dwarfs the house. Good suggestion if it were more sunny on that side.

    When we reroof, we are looking at a rubber roof for moss proofing, a roof with a 50 year transferrable warranty. It comes in black and grey. We are looking at grey. This is only for the house, not for the barn. The barn is steel painted blue and white and the roof is already completely white.
