I installed the front door “sunrise patio,” otherwise known as the midget door (Home Depots -2″ width mess up). Possibly the carpenter comes tomorrow to do the main support. I didn’t hear from him to confirm, but the wood showed up for the job. The delivery driver told me about his grandfather homesteading up in Pioneertown back in the 40’s.  He said when you wanted a parcel of land for free to homestead on, you had to pick out a few plots, submit them to the county and the county decided which one you get and the new owner had to pay the Processing fee.  Back then it was $90.00, which still was a lot of money.  Luckily, his grandfather got his first pick and built his cabin out of reclaimed barn wood he got for free for tearing down an old barn.
