Porch Update


...and after!

Well, it's been awhile since the last porch update, but this one is a big one!

In the last couple of weeks, we have been able to get the roof finished. With the help of Wimer Construction, the roof structure was built, and then a roofer came to finish it with the new roof. It was amazing to watch how fast they did this. I have a new saying, "It's much more fun to HIRE IT DONE!"

So, what remains to be done? Rich needs to build the front steps, install the railing, put up the siding on the front of the house (where the br0wn paper is), install the tongue and groove wood ceiling and recessed lighting, and then paint the house (thinking of a butter yellow), add shutters, and paint the front door (barn red?) replacing the decrepid door handles. So, it is going to be awhile. Christmas? No way. Next summer? Most likely. Yes, I can see myself sipping iced tea in a rocking chair now!

Happy Husband on new porch!
