One thing we’ve really missed since living in this house is a screened porch. We decided to save for one and, most importantly, to pay someone else to build it. Our permit should be released by the city this week and then the contractor can start ordering lumber, dumpster and whatever else.
Since yesterday was a beautiful day, we decided to rip the little deck off the house. This wasn’t about the cost so much as I love demolition. We took our time yesterday because the contractor wants to reuse a couple of things from the little deck to match the porch with our existing deck. We decided that we’ll rip the floor boards off the existing deck and replace those while the porch is being built. That way we can throw the old lumber into the dumpster. That project is for another day.
