Porch Progress

So Project Fix the Rotting Porch and Garden is still in progress. Sure, we thought it would be a 1-2 week job. Sure we thought it would get done in time to paint it before the weather turned too cold. Sure we picked a paint-ready wood just for that purpose.

Meh. What can ya do, right?

So long as the weather is decent today and tomorrow, I have a feeling it will be done by the end of the week. SWEET!!

Here are a few iPhone terrible pics of the progress:

(After so many years of complaining, the rotten wood garden wall was ripped out! PS my poor hostas were attacked this year. Sad.)

(Garden wall going in)

(You can see here how rotten the joists were on the end!! Um yeah...replacement needed!! We also added a window well to the basement window)

So there you have it - should be done by end of day Friday (here's hoping) and then we only have to wait ALL WINTER to finally paint it!! haha

Looking good! Looks like slugs got to your hostas too. I had huge clumps in my backyard, and had to give them all away this past summer because I couldn't win over those slimy little things. Btw, did you end up using Mr. W for your porch?

I'm still in awe that you guys are this handy and ambitious. I hope you got it finished before it got really cold. Can't wait to see an update!
