When my husband and I began this adventure called “Building a House”, everyone said it would be stressful, cost more and take much longer than we expected. Boy, were they right! In my springy, starry-eyed optimistic brain, I thought, “Pooh, we’ll be in by Christmas!”
That didn’t happen.
As I am staring down February in the face, I’m not much closer to unpacking my dishes. However, we HAVE made progress. Just at the pace of an over-weight, geriatric, under-achieving snail.Here is the front porch,
and the back porch.
I am really loving the back porch. It is 63 x 9 which means plenty of room for everyone to sit and not be on top of one another.
A huge bonus.
I know, the poles and windows aren’t exactly centered how I would want them, but beggars can’t be choosers.
I’m also in love with this….
A HUGE car port that is……wait for it……….
ATTACHED TO THE HOUSE!
No more running like a donkey in need of a hip replacement just to get the groceries in out of the rain.
‘Cause that’s how I run y’all. It’s not good.
Plenty of room for both cars, tractor, golf cart, whatever. And I can send the kids outside to play even if it’s raining. BONUS POINTS!
So, it is all coming together.
One piece of tin at a time.
