I wanted to give you a quick update about the progress we are making on our front porch. We had to slow down a little on the front porch over the summer because we were so busy, but now we are hitting it hard. It will be “mostly” finished by this weekend! Yay!
I had to search through my old posts to look at the last update I gave you. You can find it HERE. I couldn’t remember the last pictures I showed you, but I found them! Here is where we left off…
In THIS POST, I shared with you how we created a mudroom in our new front porch addition. Well, we still haven’t completed the inside of our front porch addition, but here is what the front porch looks like as of today!
I was going to get a picture of the whole house, but the sun was rising right behind the roof, and I couldn’t get a good picture. :( But you can see how far we’ve come! We got the siding painted the same color as the rest of the house, the columns wrapped and painted, and the lights (from Lowe’s) installed.
This week, Cy will be finishing all the detail stuff. After we add insulation to the top of the new addition, we will be able to build our front porch ceiling. We also need to put some more paint on the columns and finish the molding on the top.
I love our wood floor on the porch! It has to dry out for about another month before we paint or stain it. Right now, I am leaning on painting it a gray color. What would you paint it? Or would you leave it natural? Stain it? I would love to hear your thoughts. :)
I have always wanted double doors on our home, and we were thrilled to get a STEAL on these doors. A friend of ours has a door and window company, and a client of his ordered these doors but didn’t like the way the glass looked. So he let us have these doors at cost! We saved a TON of money, and I love the way the glass looks. It will give us privacy, but still lets the light shine through! ( The door handle is from Lowe’s.)
Our “plan” is to have 95% of the porch finished by this weekend, so we can start working on my office space next week. #fingerscrossed
I cannot WAIT to put some pumpkins and mums on my front porch! ACK! I have always, ALWAYS wanted a front porch that I could decorate all pretty for fall. It’s going to be super fun!
Are you ready for fall, or are you still hanging on to summer?
