Planning for a grilling/greenhouse/generator/rain porch space

| August 25, 2016

Home Improvements: Landscaping and Blacktop

My back is sore and my muscles ach as this past weekend was spent working in the yard … well really in just part of the yard. I’ve been reworking the landscaping as the ‘new porch’ is slowly coming together — this past weekend was the small pond and opening up the pool. (too many […]

Backporch Project gets some stamped concrete

| December 22, 2007

Our backporch project is S-L-O-W-L-Y progressing; about the only thing slower is the airplane project! 😀 The slightly warmer weather this week permitted our contractor a window to pour and stamp concrete although we are in for a change come tonight.

Our Porch Project gets a roof

| October 12, 2007

The framing crew has been moving along quickly as the back porch project starts to take shape.
