Hey y'all! We're so excited to say the TONS of progress has been made on our house in the last two months! YAY!!! As we are quickly approaching our baby's due date, we wanted to get a good bit finished on the house. So we decided to take one week off from work each month and dedicate it entirely to working on the house and so far that has worked very well. During one of those "house weeks" we started and completed our timberframe porch. The porch has been a huge blessing lately!
Also, we want to say a great big thank you to all of our friends and family who came out to help us put it together! We seriously appreciate y'all!!! :-)
Below are a few pictures throughout the building process:
Timberframe construction uses mortise and tenon
joints to lock large timbers together without using nails or fasteners.
One of the tenons is pictured below:
It was very exciting seeing all the beams going up
and fitting them together!
The metal roof going on!
Here are a few up close pictures of
the joints once finished.
It looks so good all finished!
With fall just around the corner, and it starting to be a bit cooler outside,
we've been eating out here on the porch nearly every meal!
(I just had to include a picture of these lovely, purple Asters
by the porch steps because they're just too pretty and mean that fall isn't very far away!)
And..... this is by far our very favorite spot on the porch! :-)
So there's just a peek into the progress of out little
Home sweet home!
