One of the things we have always wanted to do to the cabin was to extend the front deck. It is so pleasant and shady there in the afternoons...so Danny thought extending the porch would give us extra outdoor space.
Last week he took the first steps...by digging holes and framing them out ready for cement this week.
(also notice how dark the log are...hoping one day to change that too, to look something like this.)
Our logs can be made lighter by sandblasting....sometime in the future. =)
Okay, back to the porch....
The extension will add 10 more feet to the front porch.
We came up Thursday evening to get ready for the cement truck on Friday...we took advantage of the time and burned a pile of twigs the Grand-kids picked up. (Thanks Preston and Carlee)
While Danny was getting ready for the cement truck to show up...I worked on a few project in our room and the kitchen- (just a little organizing)
The day was beautiful....and surprise, the cement guy actually showed up on time.
I even helped a little with the finish work.
Now... because our busy time at work is just about to start....the next step probably won't happen until spring....but at least the cement is in.
