1 The exterior of this renovated and uplifted porch is clad with rough pine boards and battens, lovingly painted by the owner.
2 As the supervisor for this major project, I worked full-time here from mid-September to its Christmas completion. This work included building the first floor addition, demolition, installing windows & doors, taping & trimming.
3 Years later I added an eyebrow over the doors to keep the weather off.

5 The addition, set on block walls (by Gary Prinsen), is framed and the second story has been started.
6 For this second story balcony I laid down a tongue & groove pine floor, clad the beams, set posts, made railings and later screened the whole thing in.
7 A simple garden shed can still be made attractive by adding details like this belfry and using natural wood finishes.
8 These double dutch doors were made on site with cedar siding applied to plywood.
9 When the call came for some sort of pavilion over this already flag-stoned and landscaped corner of a greenhouse grower's property, preferably incorporating old beams left over from an earlier demolition, the design came fairly easily (for once) and the construction proved most engaging. Except for the roofing, I did this whole thing solo.
10 The CAD generated 3D views of this pavilion sold the concept.
