our new back porch.

i don't know what it is about me having a baby that spurs my husband to also sign us up for a home project, but it tends to happen that way. with owen, we finished our basement. (and i'm pretty sure i promised photos of that, and it never happened. and, well now it's a bit in disarray because we had some flooding and had to pull up all of the carpet down there. so maybe later..) with brooks, we redid our back porch.

we transformed it from an outdoor deck to a larger space with a portion of it screened in, and the rest being outdoor space. it's currently bare, as our patio furniture will not be delivered until the end of october, but it won't stop me from spending some time out there once our late arrival of 100 degree summer scoots on out.

here is the finished product:

one of my favorite features of the new porch? a dog door. meaning we will be able to leave our dogs outdoors much more easily once i'm back to work. and i can't say we didn't see this one coming...
