During Spring, we began a simple porch project. Like many projects, what started as a simple plan to replace the porch floor boards has grown into a far bigger project! Part old house fun, you never know what you will find when you start working on an old house! Part my fault – Designing, defining and planning are my job!
We discovered cement under a lower portion of the porch – now my husband’s make shift work area! What will this space become? Many ideas are currently being considered – covered parking, workshop/storage area, laundry/ mudroom/ pool bath addition…hmmm.. just to name a few! Work to build large shutter walls to span between the columns is underway – this will provide a nice view from pool looking back toward house and privacy if area is for storage.
Ah, the view… I love this old watermelon crepe myrtle in the center of the yard – it distracts from the porch mess in the fore ground!!
