My husband can build things, though his work schedule (as you'll see when we get to the inside posts) doesn't always allow things to clip along at a steady pace. But his main concern with this build was being able to tie into the existing roof. There was a very narrow margin of error to clear the chimney with the tie-in. Even our contractor wound up having to come out and redo a section to fix a leak.

But as you can see from this picture, at this point we have trusses and the studio is connected to the main house.

Then the stripping of the rest of the roof began so that I could end  up with this:

Our entire house is now covered in this pretty forest green metal - which matches my garden shed.
Before the guys started on the addition, they built the overhang for my front deck and put the metal roof on...

Just don't look at the mess. The front entrance was still part of the construction catch-all zone hehe
Next week, I take you inside and introduce you to my handsome hubby.


  1. I love Hunter Green! Well, I love any shade of green but Hunter is one of my favs, LOL.

    Can't wait to see the finished addition and your new craft space!

  2. Can't wait to meet your handsome husband! :)
