East porch update

building a new porch

We got the new east porch started last week. Our helper Bradley got about half way done with the roof today before it got too hot.

It might be hard to see in the picture above, but the side he's not working on is secured with a rope so it can pivot. This allows him to get the other end screwed in without needing an extra hand.

We've learned several building tips like this just by observing his style and technique. It's a nice bonus on top of the high quality craftsmanship we get to appreciate after he goes home.
