The Overview Blueprint

What are we building here?  This:

For 24 years, we've lived in a house where neither the front door nor the back door has ANY shelter whatsoever from the rain or snow.  And there is no porch or deck. This new house will have deep cover at both doors.  BUT the most coveted feature might be the street/west-facing screened porch.  I look forward to quiet, bug-free evenings of reading and conversation there, hosting neighbors, and watching the cat engage with her own community of critters.
