Called '"The Taj Mahal of yard ornaments," the espalier-style entrance cover pictured here demonstrates some useful design features.
Exterior Stair Rebuild
Before and after and step by step pictures are a great way to show progress and demonstrate building methods.
Here's a stylish yet simple trench-style drain.
Gable Dormer with Shakes
Never a good idea, many re-roof without first removing the worn layer(s). This poor tactic was done twice to this long-lived building prior to the new, much lighter cedar shake installation.

Here are a few shots showing engineered flooring customised for interior stairs.
