After having to get an entire new roof after the storm, we decided to add a covered porch to our house. We didn't really have the extra money but figured we are making our house worth so much more in the end. We pinched pennies and made it work. We originally wanted a cedar pergola but decided to go big instead. The finished product is beautiful and I am so lucky to have such a cozy home. Jake come homes from work and just stares out the sliding glass door at it. I keeping saying, I will like it when we get our savings account back up. It really is stunning. I am blessed to have such an amazing house. I can't wait to decorate it and have a spot to hang out when we have people over. I am thinking a couple rocking chairs, some birdhouses, maybe a big tin star on the house, lanterns with tea lights, I can't stand it.
