I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
We continue working on our back porch project.
Eventually, it will be a screened in porch, although we have a nice outdoor area in the plans also.
The screen in porch will allow us to enjoy some outdoor time year around without having to worry about fighting the scorpions, spiders and bees, lots, lots of bees the last couple of years!.
It has gotten to the point that sitting outside is almost impossible.
This is a view of the back of our home.
It is an old picture, as you can see, I didn't even had made my outdoor curtains, but you get the idea.
Soon, we will be adding new flooring and other upgrades, but to be able to screen in the bottom porch, we had to come up with a solution to enclose the bottom porch ceiling so when it rains, the water won't come in from the top porch, but, at the same time, the water has to be able to drain somehow.
So my very clever husband came up with a little invention of his own.
Not only the water won't leak through, but he is adding a draining system that will redirect any rain water straight into the gutter on the side of the house.
Pretty cool, right? Yeah, he is good! :)
And when is all said and done, it will look something like this.
And in the process of finishing this project, we had a little visitor that decided to make home on our porch.
We even had babies falling off the nest that we had to rescue because they couldn't fly yet.
I tell you, it is a zoo around here! LOL
Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you all here tomorrow for Tuesdays at Our Home #20 and Features.
WOW! I can't believe I have been hosting this party for almost five months now! Time goes by so fast!
