Last year, at this time, we were constructing the porches. You can see details in July of 2013.
There were a few details that we did not finish before winter hit. One was steps leading to the yard on the main porch. Dave made some steps in an empty room in the house, then the neighbor and I carried them outside to the front of the porch. They were heavy!
When Dave finished the steps,
he decided we needed a couple of trellises on either side of the windows. Something...to tie it all together out front.
He painted the trellises when I painted the steps, and at some point we will add some landscaping. It's too hot and dry right now.
More porch stuff coming later.....

The month of June was a little more ambitious. Dave had his cast switched to this boot, and could move around a little more.
He sat in this chair for several hours while putting the door on....

Hi everyone! I suppose I'm a little past due for some updates on this blog. Let me explain....
Dave had Achilles Tendon surgery on May 6. He was sent home with a tube in his leg to keep it numb, and a sling he wore around his neck that held a plastic bag full of medicine. And he had a plaster cast on his leg for three weeks.
