Dog days of summer. Definitely hard to find the motivation to write a blog post at the end of the day. We are also deep into running all of our rough-in plumbing, wiring and HVAC, which we normally subcontract out on all of our houses. I had the crazy idea that I would like to do it all since this will be our house, so definitely a lot going on.

Things under relative control now, so we are plunging back outdoors and getting cracking on the first of our two double story porches. We are starting on the back deck first, which will have a screened-in porch off of the dining room. Coming early next week, we hope to get up into the clouds and build our sleeper porch off of our bedroom.
