Work Proceeding On “Hillside Manor”

February 23, 2012

So the work continues apace, and my Hill Country haven is shaping up nicely.  I’m really happy with the way the new deck/sitting porch is coming along.  The carpenter I’ve hired, Terry Balderas, has a pretty good reputation around here and it’s easy to see why.  His work can be seen all over Camp Wood and Rocksprings, and even over to Leakey.

He and his wife run TnT Construction, based out of Camp Wood.  The two of them have lived in or around this area pretty much forever, which seems to be a common thread for folks around here.  Even those who moved off to find their fortunes in Houston, Dallas, or other states seem to find their way back home eventually.  This place seems to have that kind of draw.

At any rate, I was lucky to find Terry and his crew.  I can’t wait to see the finished product!

    Why, that’s a little slice of heaven you got there.

    Just a sliver, Dan, but I’m liking it.

    That porch dresses the place up pretty nicely, Phillip. A good piece of land around you and a nice big porch to sit out on, and that’s all the space you need.

    I really like a big front porch. It make the place more inviting.
