They wanted a better entrance.

The last two are blue stone lights I made up. I cut the reflectors off a few Malibu lights and glued em up in behind the stone reflectors.

Wow, that’s a beautiful transformation. Kick over those little stone thingamajigs and you’ve done a great job with this one.

The stone thingamajigs are lights that I made.

I know, that’s what your description says. But everything looks absolutely fantastic in all seriousness, and then…...there’s thingamajigs. I guess if the homeowner likes them we can live with them too. I’d like to see this lit up in the evening. Maybe I’ll see your perspective and like them…you never know.

I hear ya. Customer is always right, I guess. Yeah, they look good lit up, puts a soft light where you need it.
The stone on the slab was a trick. I cut 3-4 spacers for each block. Pre-fitted the whole porch then floated and tucked them in.

The best thing about that job was what I did for the windows. It has t-111 siding. When they use that stuff they trim the windows with 1 x spruce that always warps and pops lose. So I made the frames on the ground as a whole and then threw them up. I’ll post a pic

I like the roof of the portico. Looks like the lighting was well integrated within the design.

I like it all and I think the blue stone lights help tie in the slate to the brick. They help to blur the lines a bit. That is a beautiful entrance!

Yeah, that was my purpose Joanne, thanks. It was bothering me when I was building so when I finished I made the lights to pull it together. I got lucky, they liked them.
