A little oopsie to those of you who subscribe to updates via email — as I started this post tonight on my phone, I hit ‘publish’ when I meant to hit ‘save.’ So you got an email but there was likely nothing in it. 😬 sorry! Trying again…
I have some porch updates for y’all. And while you may not find them at all exciting or interesting, trust me when I tell you they are!
So last time I updated, Aaron and crew had finished up the porch floor. Well, since then, we’ve gotten nearly everything else porch-related done!
Aaron and his dad got the stringers built for the stairs. We have 4 sets of stairs off our ~1100 square feet of porch, so this was no small task.
Then they got The stair framing installed and started on the actual boards for the treads.
In the midst of that, they also got the trim board installed, and it’s a mega game changer. It’s like The Dude’s rug…it really ties the whole room together. Or you know, house. Whatever. They are using the same material for the risers of the steps, and they are working on those steps now. So you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the omg-it’s-finished-final-reveal. However, in just a few pictures, you’ll get a sneak peek!!
I have a couple more then and now photos to share with you. (By the way, I save these up for a couple weeks before posting, so some of these might actually be 1 year and 6 days ago or whatever. But I figure you get the gist.)
Fun, right???? And last, but not least, I have finally got a little bit of a start on hanging things up in here. And Aunt Anne gifted us her grandfather clock, which is cozied up in our living room, just tick-tocking away. It’s lovely!
