A Room With a View

The porch is finally becoming more than a porch! Soon it will be a real room with a solid floor and glass windows. Here's what it looked like when we started:

There were a few other things out here, chairs and a rug, but for the most part it was this an unfinished, dusty, collegiate apartment-looking place

Note the unpainted hardiplank from when this door was installed oh 8 months ago? And the dangling strand of Christmas lights. This was one classy porch folks.

And then Uncle Tonny showed up and in a matter of days this is what we had

B Daddy and I stood out there over the weekend and admired the always-been-there-but-now-it-looks-better-somehow view. It was warm and cozy with the sun slanting in. I can already feel just how lovely naps out there are going to be.

...and the best part has been the toddler-entertainment factor of having a real life Bob the Builder out the back door. I will be so sad when Uncle Tonny leaves and I have to start playing with the children again.


  1. You made me smile... are you going to have a screened in porch or are there going to be windows? what fun for you to decorate.

  2. There will be real windows and everything Helen! I think once we're done we'll probably be out of money to decorate...but B Daddy and I have a few projects up our sleeves to cozy it up!

  3. Love it! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  4. So exciting! Can't wait to see more progress - & the finished product.
