Building a wall

Still working on the porch. Getting closer to the end…but it still feels like a long way away. The weather and the holidays just blew it away. Too cold to do the concrete, too busy to care!

But NOW, the retaining wall is built and ready for the supports.

Woohoo! Its getting there. The wall is completed. Four of the support post are up…but there are still two huge ones to go. Hopefully those will be done this weekend, weather permitting.

There is still so much to do. So much that I CAN’T do. The wall is really the first floor of the porch. Then there is the porch itself and then the ceiling. Just looking at the pictures, I see sooo much that has to be done.

I aiming for the spindles to be up within a month!
