I don't know why, but the word up made me think of the Christmas song Up On The Rooftop.
This is my father, and one of my brothers re-roofing my house. And...on my days off I was up there with them. I grew up swinging a hammer as well. My father was a general contractor.
I bought this house in 1980. The original 3 rooms were built in 1905. There were additions that happened over the years between 1920s and 1940s. It was a fixer upper when I bought it, and that is exactly what I spent many years doing. And...had a lot of fun in the process. I still own this house, but now my son lives there with his son (my granddaughter is grown, and on her own).
