ID:	429792 Door framing coming together. In hindsight I think I should have made it a bit smaller!

                        4rjn, it would be very helpful if you made your pictures 800x600 pixels for upload to the forum. Currently they are showing as very small pics and it's difficult to see any detail. I'm assuming you are taking pictures and then reducing them for the posting upload...just don't reduce them this far please...my old eyes just can't see that well...

                            Looks great so far. When did you start construction?

                              Great progress, the arch looks huge or is it the angle of the picture?
                              I noticed you haven't done an offset outer arch to your inner, is there a reason for it?

                                I started August 10th. Yes I agree with the arch size. I am kicking myself at this point thinking its too big. I have that problem thinking "bigger is better" As for the offset I didn't really understand totally the location and size. I put a small 1/2" offset at the front (wrong place and too small) I am going to add a stop today and tie it with wall ties to the existing structure and hopefully that will work out. Its tough first time doing anything!!! I thought I had read and understood everything but not even close!!
