Gimme Shelter

Beastie Boy got the roof on the front porch. He did a fabulous job. We calculated the little sidewalk, porch and roof took approximately 50 hours of labor and $2,500 in materials. Can you imagine? Fortunately, he didn't charge me for the labor. My kitties are very grateful, and so am I. The light will be connected soon, and I'll be able to put up my Christmas lights. Now the snow and rains can come and the steps will stay dry. A sheet of plywood yet to be nailed up will provide more protection. In our neck of the woods, it's all about shelter from the elements.
