Hubs and my dad did some work over the weekend on the screened porch. It's really starting to look like something! We have look outs and everything! Ha. Yeah, I didn't know what that was either until Saturday. But, we've got 'em! And we've got fascia board and all sorts of other fun construction terms, y'all. I am just thrilled they were able to remove the braces and stakes out of the ground. It really looks like something now!
Next up: metal roof! We are doing 5V style in gray for those also considering metal. I like the 5V style because to me it looks the most coastal. Ours will be similar to this but a bit darker.
In the meantime we did take advantage of the July 4th sales on outdoor decor. After a ton of research and shopping, I landed on the Martha Stewart Lake Adela Collection from Home Decorators (also at Home Depot). It was on super sale, so I snatched it. It won't be delivered for a couple weeks and we'll have to store it until the roof is up, but I'm glad we were able to save some money! Excited!
I also planned a quick design around the furniture so Hubs could see where it was headed. I am not sure he really cares about the aesthetics, so long as the beer is cold and the ceiling fan works. :)
Hopefully we are enjoying the porch before too much longer. I'm guessing another month or so. To be continued!
