Notes from Home – Episode 15 {Building our New Front Porch!}

Happy Friday, y’all!!

Episode 15 of Notes from Home is LIVE!!!!

This week, we finally start building our new front porch.  We have changed the design of the porch from what we originally shared with you in an earlier episode, and I explain why in this week’s episode. 


And be sure to watch until the end to get a “hint” at a big bump in the road that we hit!  It’s not a renovation without one!  haha!


I’m heading to Kentucky this weekend for my birthday, and I can’t wait to see my family!!!  It’s going to be a fun time!

I hope you all have a blessed weekend!






  1. First of all….Happy birthday!
    But….WHAT???? I’m on pins and needles wondering why you have to stop work on your house! Do tell.

  2. Well, that’s not good!!! 😟So sorry for that notice, but praying it will all work out. Bless your heart!❤ Happy Birthday and enjoy Kentucky!

  3. uh oh! “Lucy! you got some splainin’ to do!”
    That cant’ be good; but I’ll be honest and say I have wondered about all the permits, etc. necessary for this kind of work. Anxious to see how this all unfolds.

  4. The family is hilarious!!! I was cracking up. Kids will be kids! Love this episode……sorry for the stop notice, maybe they wanted it inspected? Can’t wait to hear news. Also love your cream sweater you had on!

  5. That porch! Wow. Visions of Christmas decorations. 😊
    As for the notice…. there is always someone wanting $$$!!!
    Can’t wait till next week.
    Birthday Blessings to you!

  6. I was wondering if you needed permits in Tennessee. In Illinois it has to be prominently displayed and and inspected periodically. Hopefully you can just go get a permit. Good luck. Cy makes it look easy. I know it is not.

  7. Happy Birthday!!!! Enjoy your special day ❤️❤️🎉🎁🎂. Sorry about the sudden halt. Thinking must have to do with permits. If so, hope you get all you need and quickly!
