The asphalt flat roof that save my life is a bit different from the typical roof.
It’s the same kind of roof, but built with concrete instead of asphalt.
It was built in a park in a small town in southern Oregon and is now in a garage in a town in the state of Washington.
The asphalt is concrete, and the roof is concrete.
“You get this really beautiful, really clear green roof,” says Lisa Oster, the co-owner of Oster Roofing in Portland.
It comes in a variety of finishes, including clear, slate, and lime.
“It has these amazing colors,” she says.
The roof is a good investment for homeowners, too.
It has a lifespan of 50 years.
“If it lasts that long, you get a lot of value,” says Oster.
“But if it doesn’t, you don’t.”
It was one of the first roofs to be installed in a large residential community.
Oster and her partner had already installed a similar roof for the front of a house, and they wanted to do the same for their garage.
The first problem they ran into was how to get it installed safely.
The owners of the garage needed a crane to move the roof over the concrete foundation.
“We had to figure out how to secure the roof and how to install the crane safely,” Oster says.
“Then, once we were able to secure it and install the roof, we realized we didn’t have the right equipment for that.”
Oster’s roof is the second of its kind in the U.S. The third is in Australia.
A similar roof has been installed in the same small town.
“I’m thrilled that the people of the town have seen the value in this roof,” Ooster says.
And now, they’re all using it.
Osters roof has saved her life twice already.
The second time, she was a patient on life support.
She had kidney failure, and Oster had been working to find a new, better way to keep her alive.
She and her husband had been living with kidney failure since the early 1990s, and she had been using a ventilator to keep them alive.
The problem was that her oxygen levels were dangerously low.
It made sense to her to try to get a new ventilatory device that could help keep her lungs working.
So she contacted Oster to see if she could get one.
“She was very excited about it, and we said, ‘You know what, let’s try this,'” Oster recalls.
So Oster got one, and now she is using it in her house.
“When I was sick, I was really afraid to go outside,” she recalls.
“So I’m not sure why I was even able to walk out of my house.
I would have been dead.”
When Oster was diagnosed with kidney disease, she knew she had to get something new.
“Once I had the new vent, I felt like it would have saved my kidney,” she explains.
She wanted a new one to be able to keep going after her transplant.
“As soon as I got the new one, I went out and bought it and it’s saved my kidneys,” she adds.
“And I am so thankful for that because my kidneys would have gone to waste.”
It wasn’t the first time she had tried to save her kidney.
“There was a time when I was very sick,” she remembers.
“Just like my husband was sick,” says her husband.
“He was very ill.”
But Oster wasn’t feeling well, so she didn’t want to go to the hospital.
So instead she was staying in the hospital and getting a new transplant.
So after a couple of weeks, she called Oster about getting a vent.
“The nurse said, this is really nice, this vent is a great way to help you,” Oster says.
They put it in, and it works well.
The new vent has helped her keep her breathing for months.
“This vent, if it works for you, you know, is a wonderful, great, great product,” she tells her patients.
