Outdoor Living



When we first started building our 12x36ft. porch, folks have quizziczlly asked why so BIG?! So now that summer is here, and the inside of the house is a mess of building materials and sheet rock dust, we are camped on the front porch. This has worked out marvelously. One side is our "dining room", with the table and benches Brian and I made, the other side is the "living room." Here we have our camp chairs and the very important Johnny-jump-up that keeps baby Gabe happy and, most importantly, immobile. It is a wonderful sizaed porch and we are glad it is not any smaller. It has truly been an outdoor room for us all the summer long, nice and shady, and able to take in the cooling breezes.

Over the summer we enjoyed many suppers around the campfire ring on the back side of the house. We had so much fun with this that we decided to make the campfire ring a permanent part of the landscape, incorporating it into the patio. (Next Year?)

Meanwhile, Brian is building interior walls, wiring, plumbing, and occasonally snatching a loving kiss from his adoring wife.
