Back Porch Progress

The back porch is coming along nicely. 
The exterior door has been installed. 
The gable has been sheeted and house wrapped. 
And the Trex decking is just about finished. 
Here's a little snap of my hubby taking time
to teach my oldest how to use the battery drill.
He helped screw several boards to the joists.  

Table and chairs finally make it out of the yard and onto a porch!
For now, we just laid some boards across
the stringers to make a set of stairs.
Eventually the Trex will make it to these stairs
to be just like the front porch steps.

I enjoyed my first cup of coffee on the back porch this afternoon. 
It was such a beautiful, mild day.  The boys were playing in the back yard and I had a chance to call my mom!
Can't ask for anything better!

Front Steps

Hubby is making progress on the front porch.  We chose Trex Composite Decking for the floor and white PVC boards for the risers.  I'm not sure how the PVC boards are going to hold up against two muddy little boys.........but I like the look ... so Que Sera Sera.

I always enjoy starting with a before pic.

And now

We are going to make a porch roof with railing.  But we have some other things to attend to first.
Like finishing up the back porch! 

Here's a little peek of what's going on with the addition and back porch.
