We drive a car that runs on used vegetable oil and we built a straw bale house... we thought this might be a fun way to document our adventures and maybe, in turn, help others who decide to give it a go as well. Note: If you are interested in reading about the building of our straw bale house check out the blog archive (on the right side a little ways down) from 2008- when we began our research and 2009- when we actually constructed the house.

Log Porch Columns
14"x10' logs $50 a piece. Sounds like a deal until you
realize that you have to make them pretty yourself.
Yea for Richard's help!
Russ routing out the bottom of columns to countersink
the metal plates- so they are safely attached to the
foundation and sit flush with slab.
A LOT of sanding later and we have 3 beautiful
natural porch columns on each side of our house!

Porch columns can be structural or decorative, but in either case they are key elements in your porch's visual impact.
ery nice update! It's the small touches that make the biggest impact.
