Welcome to our Wyoming blog. On this blog I have been sharing how we came to move here and the 'adventure' we have been on every since. We started with a hillside, and today (6 years later) are finally putting in some landscaping. We are by no means done. I hope you will come along on our adventure.

I also have 2 other blogs. Big Horn Mountain Creations show cases my quilting and other artistic adventures. Decorating my Tin Shack, is about creating a home thru decorating. Both are on the side bar, I hope you will stop by.

Porch progress

The logs are all up, and the tin is going one next. It is taking awhile to do but it is getting done.

If you notice the one
pole is going
into the building
instead of down to
the ground. This is
where the ground
drops away.
Steps will someday
be winding around
the corner and up
to the porch in front
of the white spot.

As the tin goes on you can see the rafters to support it, these are boards cut from
logs with the wain (bark) left on.

A look at the porch from the front of the house, it does add some weight to the building,
so it doesn't look like a trailer sticking up in the air, well at least not as much.

This past weekend Kirk and I tried our hand at rock work, and yes I helped. Not to bad for
a couple of newbies. The deck to the porch will be about 8 inches above the rock and all 4 posts will have rock bases. We have 2 more to do and are rather pleased with our efforts and it is good practice before we tackle the front of the house and greenhouse. All the rock are found, of which we have alot to "find" on our property.

Oh, cool looking! And is the deck on now? Will all this prevent the water seepage this winter?
