Porch Progress


We have continued to make slow progress on adding our new porch, although yesterday we had a setback. John discovered that the special-order outer window (despite being carefully measured by two experts) turned out to be the wrong size for the heirloom Van Gilder stained glass panel it was made to protect. So we are now waiting to see how long a replacement will take to make. We are also waiting for the test tiles from the special-order mural from Fireclay so that we can check the color. We are about to place the order for the wrought iron railing from Brian’s Welding.  The good news is that the two new round windows above the porch in Paul’s room look good.  Construction is a slow business.  Even though the rainy season just started, we hope to be done by Christmas (this year!).

  1. should we comment on experts’ expertises? or malfunction by craftsmen
    The Result is the same… patience …
    maybe both will blame Van Gilder for not respecting their size
    as long as there is somebody to blame !!!!

    Thanks for my cup
