    Okay looked like a door.. we don't have a walk out here. Just upstairs or downstairs.. Used to have an upstairs porch but it was made of wood and ill designed so it's history. My mom has the perfect workshop that has a large porch overlooking the Snake river..One can work in the shade on the porch, inside looking out through a mass of windows or just off the side of the porch in the sun. I have a hard time being creative here because there is no place to just setup.. The neighbor and rod got me forty feet of running glass in eight foot section walls. Hopefully in the future we can put a room up to work in.
