After the first big snow when I moved into this house, I knew there had been a faulty design way back in 1952.
The existing roofline allowed snow to plummet off the roof and pile in front of the door. To walk out some mornings, you had to put your shoulder to the screen door and SHOVE. I’ve not been a fan.
I’ve wanted a deck and a porch and new windows for this house since I moved in. Finally, one of them is happening.
I designed a simple covered porch. Two large logs are the main focus. We had to calculate the height allowing for space to fit under the soffit of the main house. We also needed a tall enough pitch for my special item.
The rest of my crew showed up from preg testing the last of our cows just in time to have Daniel help with some heavy lifting.
Tomorrow we finish the roof and hang my special item.
Knock on wood!
