So this morning’s project was Ian’s lair, …

…Which is getting a veranda.
100_4911Those concrete pylons will be covered with planters, and if all goes to plan (hah!) the whole thing will be covered with grape vines for shade. There’s a smallish roof going on over the door as the picture was snapped.

On my way home, I was struck by an incongruity that will probably be a while going away…
100_4912The near side looks like the Lair. The rear looks like somebody’s house. Weird.

    It didn’t take you long to get your gas hooked up again.

    I think you are going to be shocked at how nice your little place looks when you are done.

    No, that was only one adapter and then screw on the flexible pipe and regulator. Takes longer to bleed the line and light the oven pilot.

    Speaking of the propane, though, I was delighted by how close I was able to keep the hole for the pass-through pipe. With two other people there to help maneuver the panel, I didn’t need to allow for any slop at all. (still needs to be caulked, since I totally forgot to buy caulk.)

    Just curious- Was there ever anything more from the cattle guys in regards to the dog fight?

    House is looking great by the way. Probably be real comfy by next winter.

    The Lair is somebody’s house, Or did you mean somebody else’s house? :-)

    Mike: Still working that situation, no new developments.

    CH: I meant a normal person’s house. :)
