..the porch is finished! And other stuff, but we'll get to it eventually! This has been a summer of much more laid-back building than last year. By this time last summer, we were frantically wondering if we would be able to live in the house before it got too cold to live in the storage shed! This year, happily enjoying running water, electricity, and a roof over our heads, we are savoring the privilege of all this and soon we'll have a porch and wood shed, too!
When you look at the house, the end of the porch nearest the front will eventually have walls. This end will be the woodshed. The far end, nearest the back of the house, will be screened in. The woodshed will block the western sun, creating a shady haven on the porch for the hot summer days. Stay tuned!
