Farmhouse Redux ~

We have begun to tear off the old frontporch....


I'm happy & a little sad too...
thinking about all of the good times that must have been had
on this old porch by the folks that built this house back in the 1930's...

we've had some wonderful times here as well...
sitting on the porch swing on a warm summer eve ~ watching the fireflies & listening to the whipoorwills in the woods...
and taking shelter under the porch from a thunderstorm...


see my Passionfruit plant next to Pete?
we'll be moving it, then bringing it back once the new porch is done.


of course, Pete's right-hand-man is never far away from him...
especially if there's renovation work to be done
and perhaps a stray piece of wood needs to be chewed,...
... um, I mean 'sized' and remeasured....
Buddy, always willing to help :)


our new porch will be brick...it will be an open plan,
much like those found in Colonial Williamsburg, but in keeping with an old farmhouse.
Peter is incorporating a brick patio for us, complete with a fire pit & spit for those chilly winter nights under the Blue Ridge stars...


I'll share pics of the progress as we go along ~
wishing you all a wonderful day!


blessings from the farm,
Lori

Oh the memories your old farm house has Lori. Will you be able to repurpose the wood from the old porch? The brick sounds lovely for your new one. I can't wait to see what it will look like. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Lori

Big undertaking...but looks like it's in very capable hands...and paws. I'm sure it's bittersweet to see the old go, but I can only imagine the delightful space you will create in its place....the memories will love it equally well if not more....Have a beautiful Saturday....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
