My Studly Men...


E. is quite handy with power tools....
so ya can see just how big these pillars really are..
Will being a goof ball and fake stabbing himself...
He didn't help, he just got eaten up by 'squitoes...
Well, hello there again! Just thought I would get some pix up on the porch work that has been going on. It has changed the look of our house quite a bit. It's kinda hard to explain exactly what the porch will look like. It will be considerably larger than the one we had on here...it's depth is to the brick pillars, which will have a limestone ledge on each one with a cool angled pole up to the new roof. most of this work will not be done till next year. if we do not hit a recession, that is. eventually that will lead into a breeze way ( I think, David changes it often) and then onto a garage!! this new deck will also lead out to the pool someday.

These pix are of my guys working on it last night...they got started on the decking. We are so impressed with the detailed work that the bricklayer (Josh) did...he spent a great deal of time making sure these pillars were JUST RIGHT. very particular! He did an incredible job! I didn't post the pic I took of David hugging the pillar. It's pretty funny but unnecessarily embarrassing. maybe another day.

Needless to say, eventually this porch will be spectacular. When someone else buys this house. I just don't have it in me to decorate efficiently. Martha Stewart has left the building. o well.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Hey, don't sell yourself short! You do have a Martha bent - I saw your house yesterday for the first time and I say anyone who has such a cool workstation as you have definately as a Martha gene!
