Creating an Outdoor Living Space With a Covered Porch

Creating an Outdoor Living Space With a Covered Porch

I am going to take you through our first major project as homeowners way back in 2012, our back porch! I absolutely loved the result, this was my favorite space at our first home.

There were a number of issues with the porch when we purchased the house.  

  • Rotting wood & hornet infestation

  • Low roof line which made the house and porch feel dark

  • Cracked concrete

  • Sloped yard which caused standing water on the porch when it rained
