The Porch

Now that we have a little one, our house projects have slowed considerably. However, we were (and still are) determined to finish at least one big project this summer. That project is our porch. Since we bought the house 2 years ago, we have wanted to restore the closed in front porch to its former glory. So a few Saturdays ago, Steve and his Dad got to work. Here's at look at what they got accomplished. Keep in mind that the porch is not yet finished--we still have to refinish the original columns (they will replace the 4x4's) and add new porch lights, but we're pretty excited about how things are looking already.

This is what the house looked like almost 2 summers ago when we purchased it.

What the inside of the porch used to look like.

Making progress...

And here's what it looks like now! Our happy little home with its well-deserved face lift.

I love the out come of house projects but since going part-time ours has slowed as well. I think your home looks more inviting and welcoming then before. Very Cute!
