Entry Way Project Update

The new front porch and entry area has really started to take shape in the last several days.  It’s looking so different now, so I thought it was time to post some updated photos. Last week, several more coats of primer and paint went on the exterior of the new entry way addition and the…

Even though there hasn’t been a lot of progress made on the entry way addition in the last couple of weeks while most of the efforts have been focused on finishing the new driveway before the weather turns cold, I decided last week that it was time to start thinking about paint colors for the…

The Trees are Down!
