Last week's photos of Dave and Tami's log home from B.K. Cypress Log Homes.
A week has passed since then with perfect building weather, so I imagine it looks very different even now.
The happy couple.
Dave actually carried Tami up the steps and over the threshold.
Or ... did I just imagine that?
Inside view. I love a neat construction site.
(I never have one of course, but I admire those who do.)
This contractor has his ducks in a row.
Detail of the log joinery.
Look in the right upper corner of the top log.
Yup, Tami's first house spider.
One of many more to come, here in Florida.
And in other news ...
Closer to home, I spent yesterday rebuilding the front porch steps.
Since they were as old as baby Emma, it was time before we all fell through while carrying a load of groceries.
Photos will be posted this week, but it's just porch steps folks.
Very satisfying though ... I tell ya, I love to pound 16 penny nails with a heavy hammer.
You can keep your nail guns.
Speaking of Emma, guess who received the highest grade on her recent college Wetlands Course test?
Way to set the curve, baby girl!
(Wetlands are in her blood, so I could have predicted that one.)
The USF college girls had a pumpkin carving party last week and Emma sent me this photo of the results.
Here's the email credits:
"I attached a picture of our pumpkins! Here's who did what:
Corinne: Owl at the top and Freddy Kruger below on the right
Me: Lock Shock and Barrel from nightmare before Christmas (3rd down on the right)
Christy: Trick or Treat
Katy: Mario at the bottom
Lynn: Buffy at the bottom
Mike: Jack from night mare before Christmas middle left
Amanda: E.T. "
("Me" was Emma of course)
That's a long way from two triangle eyes, a triangle nose, and a gaping smile.
Now, I really must get outside on this glorious Florida fall day.
There's datil peppers to pick and sauce to make.
