Safe-T-Porch

You may not make it up or down the stairs, but at least you won't fall off the porch by accident.

Neither run nor rise should change in a stair

I have spent my entire career in the construction industry. Anytime I see an example of poor workmanship, I say, "Man ... that looks like *I* did it!" Well, folks, this is off even THAT scale.

Is this the Escher residence?

Porch Decor

The Plantation

The plantation consists of 200 acres in Spotsylvania County, not far from Fredericksburg, VA. The home is Federal in style. It was started in 1797 and was completed in 1812.
