From Porch to Family Room

My husband, John designed the family-room addition to replace that porch on his computer. Inspired by a photograph I'd torn from a magazine years before, we decided the addition should have a lofty vaulted ceiling with an octagonal window in the gable end. So Doug raced off to get the structural engineer to sign off on the change, and John raced off to buy the window.
