I was so excited about the porch project that I was taking daily progress pictures, or pictures after every day that it was worked on. Unfortunately, I didn't get the original picture before landscaping was removed. I'm sure we have a picture somewhere, but not handy. This first picture has all the shrubs removed and the post holes were dug waiting for the first inspection. How do you like the side by side? Finished porch on the right.

Once the inspection was done then the framing went up quickly (don't ask the guys doing it they might have a different view).

Then the deck boards.

Wow, there goes the header for the new roof/ceiling.

More ceiling roof stuff.

The following picture was the big work day.

The work crew was working on the roof in the front and our family/friends crew were tearing off the shingles in the back.

Peanut was out back looking for someone to play with. What a beautiful day.

This next photo was on Monday after the crews worked putting the new shingles on on Sunday. Another beautiful day....do we live in sun valley?

TA DA The finished porch. Isn't it beautiful?!

And here's a picture of what we look at while sitting on the porch.

And another view.

The whole process was relatively quick. We started March 29th and got final approval on May 5th. We have already enjoyed several evenings out there and absolutely LOVE IT!!
