Done for the day. Tired now.


Big Brother and I are going to have dinner with some neighbors at 4, after which I plan to collapse in a heap.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Looks nice; I like the notching, shows attention to detail.

    I did jumpstart the Wayback Machine, and it mentioned that, looking at the 3 posts supporting the roof structure there is an opportunity to include as a “Design Element” a pair of notched and fitted “X” sections (using matching 4X4 lumber) inside (specifically, not on the exterior surface) and between the 3 posts, running from railing height to just barely above the concrete bases. That such a “Design Element” would make the post structure extremely ridgid and resistant to any future misalignment. As in racking. And, done carefully with the joints (reasonably) tightly fitted would also be attractive.

    The height of the roof posts means they’ll have a great deal of leverage over the porch posts to which they’re fastened, and IIRC there’s already been a racking problem identified at that level.

    Just a thought.

To the stake with the heretic!
