Last spring, we replaced all the windows. Had a professional installation. I love our new windows.
We added the new shutters too.
So this year we decided to tackle the front porch. It is in need of a makeover because
- it slopes towards the house instead of away
- it is UGLY!!!
I've always hated the railing and the steps to nowhere never made any sense.
So the plan is to close that side of and square off the planter. I kind of like planter. We are going to tear up the terracotta-ish tile top on the porch. It too is ugly. We really aren't sure what is under that tile monstrosity. I guess we will find out.
We are going to pour a simple slab. New railings, new front door, and maybe some Adirondack chairs.
The railing? That is still under debate. Might come down to budget.
Option one - The budget friendly choice
Troy's choice - but I think it is a bit to fancy for our house and all those little inserts are pricey.
My choice - wider pickets and clean lines.
