Building a new porch over an old sinking one!

This is my first try at using SketchUp.

It was quite nerve racking, & took a lot of patience.

It took me much longer than if I’d planned it on paper,

But it was a challenge just trying.

The final results were very satisfying.

Barb took a lot of pictures.

Nice deck. I was not able to follow the link….

Two chairs …, nice, but this will be a looooooooong time for us, with 11 kids and all still live on the property.
