  •  when I finish (15+ / 0-)

    I'd like to try one.

    I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the railing. I don't want to use verticle boards.
    I've been looking at what I can buy for 6 weeks.
    the wood is junk !

    I've thought about 3x4" plywood & using a router to make a flower/vine looking effect. But how could I seal the plywood to keep the water from ruining the work put into something like that ?

    I could use Aluminum & paint it black. But I think David would shoot me if I bought 5 sheets at $120 each !

    I'll let you or exlrrp know when I'm ready to try a post on it.

    •  I put cutouts in the peaks of my roof. (5+ / 0-)

      I didn't want Victorian but sort of nautical because of the river. They're triangles with an upside down fan of drop-shaped cutouts. They're up in the peaks of the dormers. Crappy picture:

      I couldn't bring them forward to the edge of the overhang the way I wanted so they're placed against the house.
      I used 1" marine ply and finger-spread silicone caulk on the sanded-to-round butt edges, then primed and painted.
      It's so cool because you can make any shape or pattern cutout. Jigsawville, baby.
