Have you ever tried to look at a little piece of paper and visualize what it will look like once it is as big as a house? Needless to say, I do not have this skill. We have made countless drawings of the addition, the whole house, the elevations, etc. I even built a scale model to try to figure out what it will look like when we are done (really, I'm not kidding). So, when we could figure no other way - we packed up the truck and headed toward the acres of asphalt that surround our town. We ended up at the Home Depot where I was able to convince the manager to let us use a section of the parking lot to draw our house out to scale with sidewalk chalk!Matt, standing on our new deck!
