Front Porch Rough Construction

This is probably it for this year.  I'll put together the materials list for the tapered columns, metal roofing, soffit, and fascia over the Winter and then finish it up in the Spring.  It will be nice to not have to worry about the snow pile in front of the front door.  We are still debating if we'll put a gable above the front steps.  I've attached a "SketchUp" concept of what it might look like.

"Fingers Crossed" that the tar paper lasts through the Winter.

Stone Work Finally Finished

The last few stones were put in place by the light of our 98' Beetle, but they are done!!

In retrospect, maybe I should have given up on this "dry stack" look. This was a lot of work. . .

Next up are the tapered columns and porch roof.
