Slow But Sure!
I'll take all the help I can get to construct our porch. This is "vacation in St. Louis week" for our family, but we did take a couple hours last evening to work on the new project. I drafted my two sons-in-law to help us set up the 6x6 posts that will hold the deck and the roof. We got all five in place, so it's finally starting to look like something is going up out there. The digging of and filling up of the pylons (10) was a much bigger job than I imagined.
This is my good buddy Steve Smith, who is really the one making this happen. I'm more his helper. He has done this before, so his help is invaluable, and deeply appreciated.
