PSA: When replacing the roof, park a dumpster next to the house

The neighbor is removing his old roof and then having a new one professionally installed. There is a big pile of shingles in the front yard where he shoved them off of the roof. I don't know how long it will take to put all of that in a dumpster, but he could have saved a great deal of work by putting a dumpster there.

He has removed the roof from 1,200+ square-foot house plus [converted] garage in the last day or two. My sister said that she wanted to drive up on Saturday and camp in our backyard with their three kids, so I am going to try to accomplish all of my projects in a few days.

So far I am just talking about it.

I have a few new ones that I want to do, too.

I was saying that I could clear out my office and they could use it as a cabin. I could set up a fire pit. What would be another good amenity?

Of course, they will just go into the house to use the bathroom.

Many people view dumpster rental as extremely wasteful of funds. Your neighbor may intend to take the refuse in a pickup since his time is cheaper per hour than a contractor.

He made two trips with a small trailer, but did not put anything in the bed. He said something about weight limits.

Weight limits?! I am sorry! I woke up in America!

He could have backed up the trailer before the nails rained down.

The weight limits are about what you have to stay under not to have to pay more to dump. Exceeding the limit at my local dump nets you an additional per-ton commercial tip fee. Otherwise tip fees are per ton with the vehicle tared on the way out.
