Porch updates

We’re making some progress with the porch. Warren’s completed the porch ceiling and most of the siding under the porch roof. The electrical outlet box and wood plate are in. He’s also trimmed out the roof and nailed up half the soffit boards.

We had some tall help visiting this weekend. Art din’t even need a ladder to paint the porch ceiling. We paid him with food, beer and a stay in the log cabin.

A bit more trim around the roof and ceiling, and a little more siding on the roof and we’re pretty close to finishing the porch for now. We’re ordering the metal roof for the porch and roofets this week. We will be adding temporary stairs and handrails as well. We’ve decided to wait and finish trimming out the rest of the porch deck later in the year. Then we’ll add a more permanent stairs and railing.

    From the last picture, it looks like you have a screw loose…

    And the background view in the first picture is awesome. Everything is looking great!
