Few more pictures.
Painted the inside roof and covered the inside wall.
Got most of the outside cedar on. I got the batons and gable ends on as well, but this picture was taken before.
I brought a trailer load of cedar home and I’m working on the windows.

Wow, nice porch, and the house behind it also looks great!!!

If you are a Gmail member, you can upload the photos there (picasa Web Album) and use the photo data in your blog. It’s really easy once you learn it how. Please ask if you want to know the detail.

Nice looking porch. I know that it adds a lot of usefulness We use our all the time in the fly and mosquito season. When it’s almost impossable to be on the deck. We’ve eaten a lot of meals on ours.

Really like the exposed beam inside with the rafters resting on instead of hanging from. Looks great.
