How and Why

Actually (to clarify the last post a bit), this began much earlier, but the photos from that phase aren’t digital, and I’ll eventually have to dig them out and scan them.  For now, the brick part is original and we added all the parts with green metal roofing: IMG_0005 The model: IMG_0980 the porch model: and not quite finished:  (a lot of things are not quite finished here…) IMG_0805 The back room needed a new roof, so we decided to build a timber framed second story instead. IMG_0342 As this expansion progressed toward a finished space, IMG_0505 the roof inevitably took shape, the intersection with the existing roof solution was barely adequate, the runoff spilling onto a skylight over the downstairs bath, and splashing on the French doors.  So, I devised a gabled roof supported by brackets to protect the doors: IMG_1513 And the cricket which I had built to resolve the original roof intersection, IMG_0378 became this: IMG_1516
