    Ah yeah, bit more complicated than just the deck when you add in the roof and such. Looks cool, though.

    It won't look exactly like that, but that was a good example. The reason for the roof is b/c you absolutely cannot use the front deck in the summer. It is just too hot - the heat bounces off the front windows and the siding making it a scorcher, and there's no shade there (trees are still too immature to provide any good shade), so a roof is a must. It'll make that space usable, which will enlarge the house by adding an usable outdoor living space. Our neighbors have a really nice porch that I think we'll be modeling ours off of, but I really like the one in the pic I posted. And with the vaulted ceiling and open concept (not enclosed, etc) it might be less expensive than $6k. And quite honestly, we could do it ourselves, but it would take longer. Construction really isn't that hard - as long as you ensure a good solid footings that go below the frost line. A good construction company could have something like we want done completed in 2 days, whereas it would take Brad and his dad about a week - because of work, etc.

    What we should do is disassemble the deck, build the porch and reassemble the deck for use on the back of the house.

    Weighed today. Down 9 lbs since the start of my whole30. I have hit 183 again, my primal low. I'm so stoked! It makes me excited to see what the last 21 days will bring since I'm extending to 37 days to finish with sister who started late. With any luck, I'll hit 179!!

    Yay for the nine pounds! 179 is my next goal, too. Maybe we'll hit it together.

    If you read the article Mark posted, there's a photobucket account you can look at that shows some of the recipes. I'm especially interested in the coconut chocolate chip cookies.

    The page for the book on the Primal Blueprint store has an excerpt. Looks like the bread-y stuff is coconut flour and tapioca flour, so not that complex. Still no idea where I could get tapioca flour anywhere other than online, but oh well! I will have to splurge on some someday.
