Family Crest

It is carved from maple originally planed for firewood. Here are the short boards I cut with a small chainsaw. After drying almost a year in a paper bags I used one for the crest.

 Hallway Addition

This is a 10 years earlier. Front porch  is remodeled. While working on the tile design I was thinking that one day that will become part of the house.

Got permit and start building. Considering all the crafts involved I think I did a pretty good job.

Roof structure was complicated. Components are ordered from truss company but putting it together was like a puzzle. Just lifting it up by myself was an achievement.

Had to learn how to roof valleys and ridges. I had to cover everything few times because of rain.

I tried to match existing facade, stone front and brick side. Brick laying and stone work. Thank you You Tube.

There is more coming. Enough for today.
