I guess as with many home improvement projects, as the work progresses, new problems are revealed. The good news is, we will have a new front porch. The bad news is that the project is rapidly becoming more expensive than we ever anticipated. I have miniature panic attacks when I get a call from Christian during the day right now. I find myself holding my breath, bracing for news of some expensive new problem.
The weather has not been ideal for painting so the pace has been rather slow. I had hoped the work would be complete before Mardi Gras, but at this rate I do not think it will be possible.
