to do on our HOME is this porch! I love this porch! It is closed off, so to speak, from being able to directly access it from the street which makes it feel private, almost. It holds my porch swing and my wicker furniture. I have a lamp on there that I turn on at night, which makes it feel like another room. It's nice to sit out there and read a book or just "people watch".
My husband had to rebuild all of the little slats surrounding the bottom of the porch. They had sunk into the ground thru the years and had rotted. This porch when we bought our HOME, was being supported by 3 cinder blocks. So of course new footings were poured and now it is sturdy again. My husband also had to rebuild the railings and now will be concentrating on the ceiling, which right now there basically is none. I would love to have this porch screened in, but Mr. Fix-it does not agree at this time. So for now I will still enjoy my porch and work on getting her all painted and refreshed....she deserves it for all the enjoyment she brings to me!
