Wrapping Up the Porch Project-literally!

Last fall Coach and I converted our deck into a screened-in porch, which was awesome. No more buggy nights, or rainy afternoons when we couldn’t use the deck for anything other than furniture storage! Since we had decorated it with quite a few pieces of antique wicker, I decided to “shrink-wrap” it to prevent any winter weather from ruining our newest addition...for full tutorial click the link.

    Hi Elizabeth- we had a contractor do the actual build of the porch conversion. He added some poured concrete support posts to the already existing ones. The roof is just a rubber roof as opposed to shingles, which is great. And yes, he did replace the flooring because he added a layer of screening underneath it to keep the bugs out!
