Wow, that is a nice looking roof! Now you can put a strawbale wall up and have a whole new room if you are so inclined!

Eric --- I used to dream of making a strawbale structure. Maybe someday we will, but nowadays when I see a bale of straw, I immediately earmark it for the garden. :-) There never seems to be enough straw....

We do plan to turn this area into a sunroom someday. Not sure exactly when we want that someday to be, though. It'll probably depend on how excited we get about other projects this winter.

does Bradley have a twin or even a cousin in NY? I could use someone like him. Impressive work there.

Irma --- Sorry we can't help you out there! Just keep looking and hopefully you'll find a Bradley of your own. Then treat him really, really well --- they're few and far between.
