You'll notice the decorative pieces on the columns are not quite right. That's because after securing them with screws and caulk, the city inspector came by and told Nate he needed to use hurricane straps to secure them the porch floor and roof. The good news is that they are now secure and the inspector is satisfied. The bad news? Just that we have to scrape off old caulk and re-caulk. Could be worse, I guess!
All in all, the house is great! I found our real camera in the attic today, gave it a new battery, and snapped a few pictures to share with you here.
|We recently got a new driveway too|
|Sometimes it looks too blue to me, but I'll get over it|
|Eventually we'll put in the permanent steps: treads to match the porch floor with white risers|
|Our neighbors also got a new driveway|
|The back door will be used a whole lot more once we get the deck installed|
|For good measure, a indoor photo. Many meals shared already and many more to come|
