Iíll be interested in any photos you post. We had a small addition to our house built. The whole front yard was torn up and a large tree removed. Many opportunities for new perennials, shrubs and a small tree.

greg-the manual calls for 2 1 x 6's to form the ridge cap. i wanted to get the rafter tails installed before adding the ridge cap.
mike-right now the annuals that we planted from seeds are about 1/2" tall. we added some dahlias and a few more perennials. I will post pictures once they start growing and blooming.

Your stone work is outstanding, thanks for the acrylic paints color list and method used. That is some great looking stone. The planks used on the decking, along with your shingles are also very realistic looking. Nice structure coming together here Kevin.

all three structures have been roofed and placed on the base (not epoxied down yet).
the base is a 18" x 10" piece of MDF, with a 1/2" piece of insulation foam adhered to it with liquid nails and clamped overnight.
