More updates!

This is going to be a very picture heavy post (aren't they all lately?). We're almost done, just a little bit of finish work left to do! I am so so so happy with everything. I couldn't be happier with the transformation!

Here the slats have been installed:

The ceiling is also in!

The new door is installed!

The posts are wrapped and the upstairs window is cut out.

Ceiling fan installed

New ceiling lights and house lights

Craft room ready for the double windows

Window is in!

Double windows installed, siding and shutters back on!

Door hardware

Such a transformation!!

Almost done, here's what's left (about two more days):

Two sets of stairs
Siding on side of porch roof
Shutters put back on

More updates!

I am so amazed at the transformation the house has taken on with the addition of the front porch. It seriously feels like a different place to me. We've gone back and forth lately on the upright posts and the railings and I'm not sure we've fully decided on anything, but I know at least these are issues that can be dealt with down the road.

The problem is we don't love the feeling of the white pvc type banisters. We both love the feel of real wood, it's just so much more sturdy and feels 'real'. BUT...I love the look of what banisters. I just feel undecided and I've been very good at making decisions regarding the porch.

Anyway, here are some new pictures:

At this point I think here is what's left:

Finish the decking
Two sets of stairs
Put in ceiling
Finish lighting
Install ceiling fan
Replace siding on house
Siding on side of porch roof
Install new front door
Install new double window upstairs

I'm probably missing a few things, but we're SO happy with everything and we've really enjoyed watching it come together!
