The auction closes at 5:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Saturday, June 29.

“Raise the Roof” Goal

Our goal is that through the Silent Art Auction we will raise the money needed to put a new roof on Dad and Mom’s home. We are currently working with Jim Spane/Spane Buildings to get a bid for what both a composite and a metal roof would cost. So stay tuned for that.

Here’s the story of the cedar shake roof that Dad installed, with the help of his kids, in the early 1980s.

Jack and Ann Dorsey, and their son, Jason,moved to Camano in the fall of 1969 and into their current home in the spring of 1970. The house had no water, plumbing or electricity at that time.

Jack began to work full time as a professional artist, as well as to start fixing up the old home. He got an old cast iron furnace from Bob Crow that he used in the basement for heat, and bought a Monarch wood stove for the kitchen for $25.

In the early 1970’s Jack asked Dan Garrison at his real estate office (now Windermere near the Country Club) if he could cut wood for his stoves from his logged off land south of Camano Hill road, now Michael Way, and Dan agreed.

When cutting wood, Jack discovered old growth cedar stumps all over and he concentrated on cutting 24 inch bolts of cedar (blackened by fir). He hauled load after load home and made a huge pile of cedar bolts knowing they would make cedar shakes in the future. He often brought Jason along with him for this work.

In the 1970’s and early 80’s, Jack and Ann shingle roofed house had lots of leaks. In 1984 Jack had an addition built on the house. That is when he started splitting shakes with a tool called a “froe.” It had a wooden handle at right angles to a steel blade used to cut through cedar bolts. He would use a draw knife to smooth the shakes into a taper, but generally every time he cut a shake, he would turn the bolt which gave a natural taper to the shake.

Jason, and his siblings April and Jed, helped a lot with the making, shaping and installing of the shakes to the new addition and original home in 1984. In the summer of 2018, Jason, and his sons Jacob and Julian, and brother Jed, along with Jack, oversaw a cleaning and repair of the original shingles. At that time Jason and Jed became convinced of the need to replace the beloved shake roof installed so many years ago!

Sunnyshore is donating all commission beyond promotional costs and food costs to raising the roof project!
