The real me is the woman in this window, manual typewriter in front of her but holding a pencil posed over paper. Deer nibble at shrubbery on snow-covered lawn, fodder both for her writing and for her life.
Or are they the same thing?

To Pergola Or Not To Pergola
Would you have done what our client did 5 years ago? This is their back porch.
They asked us to change their pergola to a
covered roof porch.
I couldn't believe they wanted to get rid of the pergola.
They wanted to be able to use the porch when raining and be able to keep it cleaner.
It was an unusual request and required building a slope that would accommodate the upstairs windows.
They already had a screened porch attached,
and we had to seamlessly tie the two together.
They were thrilled to have a usable porch.
What would you have done?
Kept the pergola?
Or preferred a covered porch?
[Sorry for the poor pictures but it was 5 years ago!]
