Porch saga - part 2 aka progress

We did some porch work this weekend...or should I say that I helped on Saturday morning, then went on to primp and prep for the Blogger Meetup, while the Mr. continued on with the porch (and very nicely played taxi to drop me off and pick me up from the meetup!).

He also worked on it for 4 hours (!!) on Sunday while I did some baking and laundry (me being domesticated? I think so...). If you recall from the initial Porch Saga post, this was the before:


Here is what a number of hours and a lot of effort gave us:


So...we still have another 1/3 of the top beam, plus the side beam, plus a couple of sides of the columns. eek. Oh yah, and the moulding up top. Interested to see what our hydro bill will look like with 4 hours continuous use of the heat gun for the whole weekend!

That is a ton of work but I bet it's going to be stunning in the end. I love the window. I know I've said it before but I'll say it again. I miss all the great TO architecture.

Oooohhhh my GOD! It seems like an absolute nightmare of a project Heather... I can't even begin to imagine. It'll be completely worth it in the end though.

I also just noticed your reading the Forgotten Garden! Loved it - and I totally recommend The House at Riverton - she's such a great writer! :)
