The Cross House

The Great Column Adventure! Part 8.

re5
For the first time in many decades, all twelve west-facing columns on the front porch are in place. This is a sight I have longed to see since 1999.

 

Too. Yummy.
Too. Yummy.

 

I have another column adventure on the south side of the house, to be completed later in the year.

The restoration of the long-missing porch railings? Underway!

Next is the recreation of the missing lattice, as well as repairing the damaged porch flooring.

I have not gotten used to all the west-facing columns being, you know, real. I keep blinking, scratching my bald head, and thinking: Are they all actually there? 

It seems miraculous.

My joy is great.
