The mariner's star taking shape

Remy designed the mariner's star for the center of the screen porch to greet people as they enter the house.

He carefully hand-cut letters for north-south-west-east and then fitted the floor tiles around the letters.

We brought out the compass and aligned the star according to magnetic coordinates. Remy says that if he ever visits our house and sees a rug covering the star, he will leave and never return.
