Saturdays are so fun because the crew is home resting and I can USE the porch!! It is getting very close to completion!! Maybe another week or so – a bit unpredictable with the holiday. Our new front door should be coming this week, but the back door had an ordering problem, so it’s about a week behind. We also have lots of painting and staining to do, although we need to wait on some of the staining so the floor wood can cure.
We’re going for rustic barn meets Craftsman cottage. Our designer, Andres, did an amazing job!
I requested very shallow and wide steps…they are a DREAM to walk up and down!! SO much better than our rickety cement steps of yestermonth.
The beginnings of paint! We’re doing white on all the upper parts. For ultimate beach cottage feel.
I cannot believe we get to live on this porch. It is so much grander than I ever could have imagined, and I thank Andres’s strategic design for that!
Luckily my oats didn’t get cold while I photographed the porch. Because they were already chilled!
Choffy!! Much more like hot chocolate than coffee. But nice and roasty!
