I've been keeping an eye on things from a distance...
Everything is fine, but the house does look lonely.
After I get back home and settled in, I gotta hit the ground
running again. Winter is just around the corner.
Yippee!... Not :/
That does mean, a few things on the to do list have to be taken care of asap. For one, I need a back porch. I'll be honest though, as far as moving stuff in, boob height access has made things a little simpler. No steps to climb, just a willing helper on the inside grabbing things. I would like better access over the snowy months though. I won't fret over it if I don't have time to complete it before the white stuff comes in, but I'll give it a shot.
All I need back there is 4' x 4' with the steps going along the house. Someone with experience would have it done in a few hours I'm sure. I'll have to give myself a few days with my limited experience. I did build the front porch all by myself ~ grin. And I think it turned out pretty good. I still have to board up the sides to hide the framing, but that can wait. Here's a night time glimpse of it...
I took this picture back in June, a few days after starting excavation with my backhoe guy. There were a lot of deer tracks too, but this guy was the biggest critter to visit that night. I set up a trail cam after that, no luck yet. I'll be sure to share when I do get a few good pics out of it.
And yes, that's my big ol' steel toe rubber boot you see there.
Btw, that last pic is off a t-shirt @ the duty free shop. Stopped in last week as I drove through the border. You know, your border officers can be a pain sometimes, took a whole lotta convincing for them to believe me that I was going back to Canada (sometime)...
