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
Banisters
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!

Ditto Emily... GORGEOUS flooring!! Makes me jealous that Jason and I stained to weeks ago and it doesn't look 1/2 as good as yours!
