The first of MANY projects!

So, the roof project has grown....

The one thing we always thought the front of the house needed was a porch.  Right now we have a deck with a silly little overhang over the door.  I always imagined a gorgeous covered porch that we can sit on.  It would be so wonderful to curl up in an afghan and read out here.  Since we are doing the roof anyways, why not?!

The overhang and railing came off.

The posts and header went in.

The rafters came next.

Then the decking.  I even got on a ladder to help lay the decking!  It's starting to come together now.

I feel for our neighbors though since this took about a week for us to do ourselves.  They probably got tired of looking at this mess!  Especially since the next week it seemed that we were not working on it at all.

What were we up to?

I guess you have to wait and see....
