The porch and balcony go up. The balcony will actually double as a sleeping porch on warm nights. It gets a metal roof as well. Nothing like the sound of rain on a metal roof to lull you to sleep. You can also see here how the house overlaps the foundation 8 inches left and right – this was done because the foundation measured 24’ 4” wide and an even 26 feet is more efficient in terms of materials.
And on a rainy day, pre-priming the porch rafters. Pink. Did I mention the house will be pink?
No, no, no, no, no! I shouldn't even joke about that . . . Now the fun part, for me, anyhow. The siding is on and painted. Looks a bit like a Shaker house, no? But looks can be deceiving.
