Porch windows

Thursday, December 11, 2008




Here are pics of the windows I've been talking about making custom for the back porch. We got DH the smoker right after Thanksgiving - first time I've actually been power shopping on Black Friday! Glad they had quite a few of them - when I got there with the shopping cart, there were only 2 besides the 1 my DD was sitting on! VERY glad it wasn't as cold that weekend as it has been this week!

You can see the plexiglass windows I built and installed. We've had pretty good winds last couple days and they are doing fine. We plan to get some more plexiglass to make more windows for the top to completely close it in. Of course, when the grill or smoker are in operation, top windows will be opened for airflow. Just make the space a little more useable and friendly! Still have to finish painting in there, and get the concrete stained, but that will probably wait until Feb or Mar now.

    We have much in common - my hubby and I are BIG home renovators too! I love your vision and what you are doing with the place. When the season slows down I would love to share with you some of the photos from walls we have knocked down in our day! :-)

Happy Holidays - With love and Support - Bren

    It's definitely flat here! If it weren't for a good levy, the Mississippi River would flood on a regular basis... I grew up in Montana with lots of mountains, but after 15 years here, guess I'm used to it. Can't say that my mile route here has much in the way of elevation changes, tho!

The porch - DH is planning to get some red chili pepper lights and hang them, and I need to make him a sign saying 'Daddy's Kitchen'. The floor will be green, and I still need to finish painting the trim, walls and ceiling. Will be using the same colors as in my craft room, but in a different way.
