We've been very busy working on the house. The foundation is completely done and this week Gary's been working on the pylons for the porch supports. The next phase will be my project- building the rock wall around the foundation and a retaining wall under the porch behind the supports. Here's a picture of what we expect the house to resemble when we're done. This is looking at it from the east, coming up the driveway which will go on around the back of the house and back down to the front. There won't be any windows in the back, just the door, because that's the north side and there's no sense in battling cold drafts for nothing. The front porch will be large enough to use as an outdoor room and the view will be awesome to the east and west and over to the valley where the horses like to graze most.
