Dear Phil,


This year marks our first year with the porch you constructed for us last summer.  Spring has just started and we are already enjoying dinners with friends, as well as our own private time and space outside.


Marvin and the crew's work show beautiful craftsmanship.  We particularly like the naturally finished wood cathedral ceiling.  Rick's design and suggested porch dimensions accommodate our many requests, and the windows and skylights give us lots of light.  Karen's suggestion to make the title floor match the adjoining kitchen gives continuity from inside to outside spaces.


The porch is also highly functional and easier to maintain than we thought it would be.  The size permits separate seating and a dining area.  There's no wasted spaces, but there's enough separation in the areas so that we are very comfortable in either area.  Your suggestion to use plexiglass panels below the chair rail permits more light, and lessens dirt and pollen.


In short, thank you for your work.  You paid a lot of attention to detail, and answered our many questions.  We also continue to enjoy the kitchen you built for us two years ago.  I hope you will thank everyone involved in these projects for us.
