It was fun and challenging since I only had 1 ATC made when I agreed to do this with her so here are my 9 ATC's and they will be off to her via United States Postal Service on Monday.
Circus Fun....Giddy Up
Can You Hear Me Now?
I also signed up of an anniversary giveaway. This was with Susan Cleveland of Black Berry Creek. She is celebrating her 500th post and I WON first place. The first place prize was 3 yards of toile fabric !
I am so excited, I can't wait to create something with this.
We have a big project going on here at Green Acres. We are in the process of putting on a bigger brand new TimberTech porch. It is almost complete. All we have to do is the ceiling.We also had our deck painted and it so pretty!
Here are some before and after pictures so far. Next we are putting in a paver sidewalk and new rain gutters. This place is getting a anniversary since we have been here in Green Acres 2 years ago April 28th.
Our Old Porch...notice the size is very small.
Tools are made out of wood to help lay the new TimberTech Boards
Getting set up for the work
Measuring and sawing and much saw dust. Yuk! This is my husband and Doug working together through the entire project.
Our contractor Douglas Conrad . After he removed all the old cement and railing, now he is ready to begin the new porch.
Doug's helper Josh....what a hunk huh?
The foundation is new cement under this new frame.
Notice the wet ground....yep, they worked in the rain for three days!
The first rail is in. Proud workers...Doug, Josh and Alan.
They also removed all the old cement of the old sidewalk.
Old sidewalk is gone. Ground is ready for the rock and sand to lay the new paver sidewalk.
We recycled the old sidewalk and used it to make a place to put the generator we are going to get .
Dirt will be here and maybe some bushes to cover the generator. Below this is a cliff that leads down to the creek on our property.
Our deck before the new paint.
Here is Douglas and Josh, his helper finishing the firs coat of new paint.
Our brand new porch completed and beautiful. Notice the size now! Wow, what a difference.
One of our dogs Petey is enjoying the new porch.
We Love it! Now the new pavers go in next week. I will post pictures of those then.
Oh by the way....remember the rain and the guys working in the rain? Well this project has taken 5 weeks. It was raining and cold when the project started. It rained so many days in a row that they could not work because of the wet ground. Yesterday and today when the job was complete it was 85 degrees which is very hot here in Oregon because of the humidity! We are all glad it is done. Now we can enjoy sitting out on our new porch and watching the dogs play in the meadow and just enjoy our beautiful scenery!
