we had planned a pretty wrap up of our front porch for you today but it snowed. two days ago he was fast and furiously working on the gingerbread siding (don’t you love it?) and the last of the metal roofing for the porch; he just needed one more hour to finish but the weather had other plans. which means stay tuned for part six (the finale.. we hope). the gingerbread siding is made from cement board (ours is hardieboard) and will be painted white sometime in the (semi) near future.
