Here is a side view of the gable porch end on the garage. We wanted a little space to put the grill away from the house and the siding but with a roof area.
This is the view from the back door to the garage....not attached. Once we get some concrete under there it will be perfect.
I will also have lights and plug-ins so I can have outside party lights or Christmas lights. That is one things this house lacks.... external electrical boxes. Not one. Now I will have two!

Adding a small gable porch to the garage where my grill and a few chairs can sit under a roof instead of on the open patio. Plus I can put up actual party lights instead of Christmas lights for my new spot. More photos to come of the finished project. The roofers were at the house from 8am to 5:15 pm and got the house, garage and new gable done. It started to pour down rain about a 1/2 hour after they left, so the "new" photos will have to wait until tomorrow...
...and did I mention it was 90 degrees today with a very high humidity? Yuck.

Mr. Tim doing a little DEMO at the RANGER booth. He was in every booth I swear! We saw him every morning at the SIZZIX booth handing out a signed embossing folder set....sweet!

Since we had time before class on Monday we headed downtown to see some sites...this time to the north of the downtown area. Lincoln Park Zoo is a free zoo with $17 parking.....so much for FREE.
The view of the city at the far end of the park.
The park is along the shores of Lake Michigan but has a busy street between it and the lakeshore.
After our visit to the zoo we headed to Windy City Scrapbooks to check out their store and see what finds we could come across.

A little site seeing along the way on our trip down to Chicago....and we are hungry and tired. We picked up Lindsay and took her with us to lunch/supper.
Giordanos Pizza is a Chicago must have!! Deep dish and delish!

We are getting a new roof put on the house....the one we put on 15 years ago didn't last as long as it should have, so we are going with a steel roof this time!
We are also fixing the roof on the garage, which is over 25 years old....and the shingles are still great looking!
While the roof is torn apart we are getting a small gable end porch put on above the door for a small sitting area for the grill to be under. That will be so nice when it rains!!
The guys are supposed to arrive while I am away for the big Scrapbooking trade show in Chicago....we shall see what happens!
