Back Porch Demo Begins!

When we bought our historic row house, the back porches, upstairs and down, were completely enclosed.

Even after the spaces were cleared out, they still weren't inviting or usable.
The space just screamed "GO AWAY! I NEED TO BE ALONE WITH MY GREY FLOORY-NESS. " So needless to say, we didn't go out there very often.

We're going to open up the entire back porch, up and down, with the goal of making it cool usable space that helps us integrate the row house with the (someday usable and cool) backyard. So let the demo begin!


  1. Cool! My sister lives in a house similar to that and my brother-in-law has done SO many renovations on it. They even have an enclosed porch like that...but he turned it into more of a storage area. I like your idea more!

  2. Oooh, as an admitted HGTV fanatic, I'm excited to see how this turns out! Good luck! :)

  3. That sounds great. I wish we could tear down walls at our little old house.'s a good thing.


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
