It won't be long now

It will be about 2ft wider than this when it's finished.

Were going to put a ramp down the back for moving heavy items

in and out or for guests who have trouble with stairs.

More pics to come later this weekend, oh and happy 4th.

Well that didn't take long

JohnnyB tore the porch apart in little over an hour.
Guess it's too late to change my mind now, huh?
It won't be long now...yipee!

Next Project

The Porch...right now it's a porch. Small, old, rotting and not much use and it has to be replaced so I figure if I live on mac n cheese and bolonga for the summer and no amazon.com (God that will be hard) I will be able to afford to make it bigger. JohnnyB is going to extend it out in front by about 2-3 ft and about 4-5 ft on the end and put another set of stairs going down the back of it so now I'll have a deck, not just a puny porch. Also this time were not going to paint it, but stain it as the paint just get's peeled off in the winter when shoveling the snow. This new deck will be big enough to have friends over and relax out there and hopefully will increase the value a little bit too. Here is what the old porch looks like now. JB will be getting started next week and i'll post pics of the progress.

Thank You...Hold Your Applause

Yessssss...I am finished. Well, almost damn it, still have 2 ultra suede pillows to finish but I have to close the ends with a blind stitch and sewing ultra suede ain't easy so I've been putting it off.
I put this last picture up tonight, a cabin scene which I thought was fitting.
All the pics are up, the Dog House is open for business. Here that guys? Now for my next project, well it won't be me doing it. JohnnyB will be building a new front porch and will make it bigger so I can entertain on it. I'll put up before, during and after pics of course.

I put up a few more pics tonight. The one in the center was frustrating. This pic was a 19 x 19 1/2 print and I planned to put a 3 inch wide suede mat and then a really nice manly wood frame, HOWEVER, since it was not a standard size, I had to go to the custom frame counter at Michaels. The price? $356.00...no kidding. Well, that is rediculous.....so, I came home, trimmed 3 1/2 inches off the sides and used a 16 x 20 frame I had around the house. The price? $0.00. Do they think I'm stupid or something?



I also made this sign tonight that hangs above the door of the room. Now just what is the dog house? Well I have several male friends who are married or living with women who drive them nuts. Constantly nagging and whining about something or other so I jokingly told them that I should advertise and rent out the room to these guys when they can't take the heat at home and they thought it was a good idea. The room comes with free beer, home delivery menu's from the local pizza places and 1 free porn pay per view movie a night...oh and absolutely no nagging or whining either. I bet that room would be full up every night......lol
