However, I need to take one post here to brag on my friend Charles Whitehead. Back in 2007, when the Front Porch was under construction, Charles donated many hours of his time and effort to construct our coffee bar at no charge whatsoever. Since we had to use mostly very simple and affordable materials, the result is not a true representation of the extent of his craftsmanship. Nevertheless, he did a marvelous job, and I feel like the least I could do for him is to promote his newly formed company, called LifeSpan. Take the link and check out his website, especially if you need any tile or carpentry work done in the near future.
