A Heart Toward Home

The Siding Goes On!

We chose board and baton and shaker shingles to be the vinyl on the house. This picture you can see the board and baton in the back at the top. Those two windows are the kids' bathrooms.
Here is a picture of the shaker shingles on the front dormer of the house. 
We added the shaker shingle also to the back porch roof.

It is all coming together!

Working on the Carport

In our plans to rebuild we decided against a garage and went with a carport.
Here are the steps that lead from the carport into the house (on the side the kitchen and LR will be on).
We put rock colomns on the carport to blend in with the front porch of the house.
Here is the back side of the carport without the siding on yet.
The front side of the carport without the siding on yet.
This is the underneath side of the carport and will have siding on it too.
Here it is with siding...This will be a nice area for us to have get togethers and parties!
Here is a picture of the house and the carport. My parents have a carport and they use it for all kinds of things so that was actually how we got the idea of the carport instead of the garage. The house before had a garage in the basement but we never used it. Our van wouldn't fit in it but now the van will be able to drive right on up into the carport!! Great place to unload those groceries and take right on into the kitchen. ;)

Cooking in the Camper

We have had to be very creative with our meals in the camper. The oven and stove are not hooked up, so we have learned to use other methods of cooking. The Fry Daddy has been used for more things than I ever imagined! :) Bryan purchased an electric skillet and we use it for baking a few things. In the picture above I made Chessy Beef and Rice and the picture below I made Hearty Green Bean Casserole.
