In the summer of 2009, at the sight of a large gaping hole in our front porch, we realized that we had to address the fact that portions of it were rotting.  Jonny suggested that we replace the rotten boards and be done with it.

Being the unreasonable type, I said, “Wouldn’t flagstone be nice?  Oooooh, and how about stacked stone columns!”

I had no idea what I was saying.  No idea.

In August of 2009 work began.

We don’t remember 2010.

In 2011 work on the porch picked up again.

On December 29th 2011, the eve of my 34th birthday, Jonny worked into the night hoping to finish as a gift to me.

On August 17, 2012 Jonny completed the final step on this little front porch project.  He’s proud of his work, and has possibly forgotten that he originally just wanted to replace a few boards (and forgiven me.)

Thank you, Jonny.
