    Picking up roof nails around the house. New roof was installed on Thurday. So far walking around I've picked up about 25 nails. Just on my property. Is this acceptable?
    No, it is not acceptable. If they properly sweep the lawn with a magnet there should be none.

    Would you recommend just paying to rent scaffolding next time?
    If you know how to walk the ladder you don't need scaffolding. Just hold onto the paint as you shuffle.

    No, but it's completely normal. They leave so fuckin many that I swear they receive a bonus for every kilo left strewn about. Check your gutters, too. I had strings of nails in mine!
    This is what I was going to say.

    Roofers are somewhere between cribbers and framers on the cleanliness/trashiness spectrum of residential construction workers (fyi that's the shitty end of the spectrum).

    LoL! Not the same, but there used to be a hot tar roofer joke on Beavis and Butt-Head that made me fall off my chair, plus another one from a stand-up comedian.
    My brother once saw a crew of four hot tar roofers finish a shift, sit on the tailgate of a truck, polish off a quick 48 beers and head home. We're talking like maybe 1-hr on that tailgate... For serious.

    "I used to be a hot tar roofer... Boy, I remember that day real well!"

    Repainted the master bedroom and the office/guest room.
    Painting wasn't too bad, but had to do some drywall repair. Pretty pleased with the results. It was clear that the previous owner never correctly dealt with the moisture issue in the winter.

    Shelves and walls in a garage with nothing on them? Did not think that was possible.

    Actually, I've done some purging and have emptied some shelf space but it just means that some cabinets will be a bit less cluttered soon.
