The porch is done! The city came today and signed off on the permit so we hung some lights and set out a chair & ottoman. It looks a bit hillbilly as we have yet to paint it and put railings up but I loved sitting out there. It will be my most used "room". I'm going to sit on it in the morning before work with my coffee and at night with a glass of wine. I'm going to sit and watch thunderstorms and snow fall. I'm going to decorate it and escape to it when my kids are driving me up the wall.
Loving my porch.
