We had a huge building project going on at home this summer. My Babe built me a porch this summer ; ) This is what my house looked like at the beginning of our building project in May! It’s nearly finished now. There’s a bit of trim left to put up and I have a few more railings to paint. It’s the biggest building project my husband has tackled yet and he did a beautiful job!!
Of course, I’ve already started decorating with pots of flowers and patio furniture I’ve been collecting. My mom found a string of bistro lights at a yard sale – they give it the perfect welcoming touch in the evenings.
We all love the new porch. It’s a great place to sit and relax and visit together! It’s where I watch my bird feeders while I drink my morning tea. I have a nice view of the yard, my flowers, the butterflies that visit them, and my bathtub water garden. …I just had to sneak in a couple more pictures of my water lily ; )
(Next summer’s building projects include a set of new front steps!)
