A Porch With A View

"I guess you can come in. But just for a minute (note tail flicking in annoyance)."

These are the re-engineered trusses. The original ceiling was to be vaulted, with the front of the loft having a 4' clearance, dropping down to a 1' clearance at the back wall. When the trusses were placed, we actually had only 25" in the front. Minor (read major) trauma getting this straightened out, but now we have 3' all the way across the entire storage loft. Much better.

Saint Tim and Iris doing a little building inspecting.

But we all know who the real inspectors are.

This was the view from "Comby's" new porch this morning.

Not too shabby.

Looks pretty good, all things considered (like not getting your vaulted ceiling!)

Wonder if the cats will expect a condo on both porches now?

That porch looks so inviting! The morning view is breathtaking. I hope you have enough rockers for everybody!
