I had a discussion with our architect about something that had been bothering me for a several weeks:
the proper term for what we've been calling our upper "porch."
I knew that "porch" and "deck" weren't quite right.
I was hoping that there was some way around it,
but unfortunately my worst fears have been realized.
We've built a "veranda"!
Doesn't that sound pretentious?
Almost as though the people who live there should play bridge in their spare time! :)
At any rate the timber framing "up there" has finally been completed! It was quite a project and has delayed the metal roof by almost two months.
No complaints from me about the delays since it looks spectacular.
We've gone from this ......
at long last being under cover and seeing the entire roof line of the house!
My fingers and toes are crossed that in about 2 weeks, the standing seam roof will be in place
and the house will be totally watertight.
Would anyone care to join me out on the veranda? (I can't say it with a straight face!)
