The first thing to do is go to your local lumber supply store. Give the company a copy of your blue prints for a lumber estimate. Some lumber supply stores offer other products such as windows, exterior doors, roofing, interior doors, interior trim, kitchens, etc. The only items your framer will need are lumber for framing your home and deck building service/porch material. Some framers offer other services such as installing exterior windows/doors and roofing felt to get your house dried in.

We arrived at Pomona Winery just after noon, ready to sample some of Pomona’s unique apple wines. Wine lovers often look down their nose at apple wines, but we’ve always been fans. The combination of tart and sweet is a delight, and we’ve been intrigued by the various blends and styles. Our favorite here was the Jonathan Oak Aged Reserve, kind of combination chardonnay and apple wine. You’ll note the delicious apple taste along with the oakiness found in the chardonnay style, balanced with the mellowness of aging. This wine has won several Midwest wine competition medals and is one of the most unique apple wines we’ve ever tried.
