    Ah, I didn't see them in the reflection. I thought, hell theirs a basketball, and not in the other shots. Bad news ddarlak, someone made off with your b-ball and big ole duffel bag there!

    On the OP, I forgot to mention, it looks very nice. I never get around to dressing up my house as much as my signs. Good on you!

    I woulda lined it up underneath the woodwork and spaces the others accordingly. The columns look solid though, definitely an improvement.

    That's most likely a visual thing between the camera and angle. You can see the door at the closest end is much larger than the actual front door, so things just appear larger as they get closer to you.

    I think the idea was to utilize/cover the existing iron. Don't want to go making an afternoon into a weekend, then be left with holes in the concrete/eaves.

    Nah, the woodwork on the gable is on the same plane as the front of the columns. If I was so motivated, I'd move 3 to match, one under each end of the gable, one center, and the last one to the left spaced evenly with the other 3.

    Yea, I hear you Jburton. That kinda thing would irk me every day though until I fixed it haha

    Cant post anything without someone seeing something wrong.

    Don't get me wrong...its a good thing to have 100 people looking at something trying to be the first to point something out. Maybe I should start proofing all my signs on here before production.

    I guess the post closet to us is the same size as the one down at the other end too, huh ?? It's Okay, wait for the OP to come back and steer us right. Unless the builder put the two end columns on both ends different to have a wider opening for the picture window, I'd say they are uniform with something.

    They look evenly spaced to me. You move the one then you gotta move the other 2 and then you have this wide gap going to the front door which would be out of sync with the walk way. Just tear the whole house down and do it right. I think Bob Vila lives up in your neck of the woods.

    If you proofed everything here, you wouldn't ever get through with revisions.:rolleyes: Much less ever get to production.
    I never post stuff on here, I don't want to hear everyone *****in about what they think I did wrong. I'm just glad my customers are happy. I don't care what everyone else thinks, just the guy writing the check.:D:D:D

    I tried scrapping the first column and painting it black and it looked like a half asssed job, they needed to be sandblasted and that wasn't going to happen.

    I then looked into cutting out the posts and putting in new ones but the cost was looking to be close to a grand and that wasn't going to happen.

    $460 and about 4 days and I'm happy.

    EDIT:

    LOL, had to go look at what was on the door, it looks like a christmas wreath, but it's not, it's full of roses and blue flowers, must be some kinda of spring wreath.... walk past it every day and never looked at it...
