View from my porch

I had a request for a view from my porch...


I couldn't find the view I wanted so this one will have to do. It was taken while they were setting the trusses last Spring.





Here's what my house looked like a few weeks ago - all that fall color scares me....winter is to close!
















Here's what the sunset looks like from my porch...















How they went from deck to porches...
While planning the house we were originally going to have a wrap around deck. When I think of decks I think of those graying wooden ones that cause splinters in your knees when you're playing jacks, or in your bum from scooching across the floor....I don't like decks. So my hubby proposed that we extend the slab and make the decks into concrete porches. We saw some stained concrete floors that we loved so I was all in for this idea - verdict is still out on who gets to pick the color.





Buck the Wonder Dog loves the porch.

Buck the wonder dog does love the porch, but only because it was warm that day Poor Buck - he's going to need a heat pad to deal with the winter, isn't he? Maybe I should make him a Buck-sized rice cozy. Out of five pounds of rice!

My hubby is going a great job on the house - or else we'd be living in a one room cottage. He is doing 80% of the labor, hopefully he'll be around to enjoy it - I daily worry that he's going to kill himself by either working himself to death or falling of the ladder putting up the stuff needed....
