(ALMOST) A NEW GARAGE
My Garage body parts arrive at 7a.m.
These guys were incredible!
I have been shoveling snow off this pad for 5 weeks - I am so HAPPY this is finally going to be installed. Mother Nature has not been our friend.
Do you think she's still mad about the trees?
By 10:00 the walls were up and they began to put the roofing in place.
This "street side" of the church with the parking area was so big and flat - I am so excited that the added bonus of the garage is some dimension - some interest to this facade. Can't wait to landscape!
It was cold and slippery and I retreated several times because it was just too scary to watch.
The siding went on quickly - it "almost " matches the 165 year old siding that is on the church.
I am VERY happy.
Unfortunately it began to snow and they called it a day.
I have days when the weather wears on me and I miss Laguna Beach and I miss Anguilla. I have found a wonderful blog - Lime in the Coconut- and whenever I feel this way I go to Linda. Just the title page makes me feel "at home". She posts a beautiful photo of a wind blown palm and it transports me. It is not that it makes me homesick - it simply feeds that part of my soul. If you missed her holiday blog with photos of her home.....have a Rum Punch and enjoy the ride. It is such a refreshing break from formality....bright colors, inventive accents, a home where warmth and humor flourish.
