With all the goings and doings to wrap up school, baseball and celebrate a three day weekend, I’ve been neglecting my porch progress updates. So, here we go…
Most of the last couple of weeks were spent waiting on inspections. Boo! On the flip side, the roof is on, the skylights are in, the electrical is started and the exterior of the fireplace has siding. We’ve been sitting out there enjoying the shade morning, noon and night.
The porch has also inspired us to spruce up our landscaping (or lack thereof) in the back. I shared the long bed a few weeks back and I can hardly believe how much things have grown in such a short time. And last weekend Honey ripped out the awful liriope in this corner bed and we added three divinely scented gardenias.
In the vein of keeping it real, here’s what our garage looks like during the construction process. Needless to say, Honey cannot wait to get his car back in the garage. While I am beyond ready to get all this in place on the porch, I just might be more excited that the donation truck comes TODAY to pick up all the toys, clothes, bedding and random things just hanging around with no purpose!!!
I’m going to go grab a cup of coffee and sit out on that porch for a spell before the littles awake. They wore me out yesterday - Target, the library, dominos on the PORCH, the pool and all sorts of outdoor craziness. Aint summer grand???
