I couldn't show you an ugly picture to open a blog post. So while I was outside this morning I took this picture of a sunflower opening up in my backyard garden. I love growing sunflowers!
So now on to our sunroom update. Ugly picture next ...
My husband began tearing out the screen porch before I could snap a picture. No let me be real honest and say that I took the first swing at the screen! I tore the first hole in it ... something I have wanted to do for a long time. This porch has been like this since 1994. Here it was in all its ugliness. The screen and some wood is already down at this point. Our deck with all my stuff piled on it at this point is to the right in this pic with the garden sign.
It's looking better! I am standing on the deck where you enter the sunroom. The carpenters put in the windows and door on Monday. Looks much better now. Progress finally!! Please ignore the stickers on the windows and door. The siding has been added and trim will be added around the doors and windows.
It is a work in progress but this looks so much better! (We have the windows open from the top and the window screens are not straight in this pic) I am going to love this room. We enjoyed the screen porch but being enclosed on two sides it was so hot in the summer. It became a place to pile stuff. It is right off our dining room where the bay window is in the picture. We originally thought about using all glass but I wanted to have fresh air in the Spring and Fall if I want to let the windows up.
This will be an ongoing project for a few weeks. There is tile to be laid, painting the ceiling and adding a couple more electrical outlets under the windows. We will be doing the work ourselves and take our time.
And now to leave you with another pretty flower .. a pink zinnia!
Thanks for visiting!
