Can you believe it?! The porch is done! In these photos there is still stuff on the porch that has since been removed.........like the exercise bike,and the blue tarp with 2 bags of hard cement in it. Looks much nicer. Of course there are dog dishes and bed, garbage can, BBQ, etc. But hey! That's what porches are for, right??
This shot is of the ramp at one end. I guess Ronnie was planning for our really old age! But it was a good idea........I think. It will be handy when I start parking the Van back by it and carry groceries and stuff into the house. Will save us steps as we will be able to go directly into the kitchen instead of traipsing through the front yard and up the stairs, onto the front porch and through the living room to the kitchen! Oh yeah, the 4 too short boards will be replaced with the right length! :)
This shot is from the opposite end, where you can see the openness of the porch. We decided not to put a railing around it, but leave as is. Kind of reminds me of an old West porch. I got busy and hung up all my wind chimes and welcome sign and another sign I had. Looks more "homey" now. I love it. What will I gripe about now? :)
Something happened to our Modem Friday afternoon, and that left us with no internet access until late this afternoon. So that's why there's been no blogging for a couple days. It's nice to be back on line. And Lorilee........I made a typo on the gas price; it's $2.55 a gallon. I'm glad someone called me on that (my cousin in Olympia).........although it would be nice if it was $1.55!
That's all I know for today. Take care and God bless you with His Grace.
