Patio enclosure

We had the guy come last week to discuss getting the porch enclosed.  We are getting a 3 season patio enclosure but we're only doing half of the porch.  We had a figure in mind what we would be willing to spend.   To do the whole porch would have been double, yikes!!  I'm very, very excited about it.  It won't be done until sometime in August but I'll be happy to have it for the fall. 

We will eventually get some kind of flooring done and get some furniture as well.  I'm not sure if we will still do that this year or next.

Also, the enclosure will be from the driveway side to 16 feet which we will not have access to the back door.  When it's done, we will have to go through the patio enclosure to get inside the back of the house.  We will have to get new steps put in to get into the back door, ha..

My grama had a covered porch that I loved to hang out in. Someday I'll have a nice back porch all covered too:) Enjoy yours!

You will be able to sit on your porch and have your morning coffee or tea. We have an enclosed porch at our lake house. My dream is to have a huge covered porch with a fireplace. I've always wanted to have a sleeping porch with a chaise lounge! I know you are going to love this!

oooh, that sounds nice. I would like one with a fireplace in it, so I could go out in the winter and watch the snow, too.

We recently had our lanai enclosed and we found a great flooring product at Lowes. It is a peal and stick that looks like a wood floor. They come in 3 foot long pieces and are pretty easy to install.
