Fruits of Our (Uncompleted) Labor

Someone is a little more brave than I. OR someone is more eager to enjoy the back porch.  We are still figuring out if we're going to take the roof off and install an automated awning, or if we're going to leave the roof as is for now. The type of railing we install will depend on that decision. So, no decision? No railing.


  1. I love a porch or a deck so much, I'd be right there too. Who cares what it looks like? It's outside and that's all that counts.

    I say go for the awning. It would really open everything up, and reading/blogging outside would be a much sunnier experience :)

  3. that's a tough choice! An awning would definitely be nice. Can't wait to see what you decide.

    Have a great weekend!

    Is your brickwork painted? If so, do you plan to try to remove the paint? I redid my front porch (from an enclosed box to its original open style) and now have to deal with the beige paint around my front door. Any tips re removal are most welcome!

  5. Our brick house IS painted. Ugh. We haven't even attempted THINKING about how to deal with it! Thanks for your question!


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
