Some of you will remember my original problem when I started posting on this board. I wanted some type of sitting area on the front of the house. I sometimes sit in the living room, but there are no windows that face the street go figure!
We tried to re-arrange my kitchen to include a sitting area, but we never came up with "THE" plan. After obsessing about it for months, I decided to stop talking about it and focus on other projects.
Fast forward to 2 weeks ago. While re-reading an old post from Flowerlady, I realized that she had a nice office by closing her small porch and that it could work for me too.
So, I decided to close in my front porch! For me this is a good fit. I wonÂt miss the porch because I never sit on the porch (mosquitoes love me).
My porch is 5.5Â x 11Â. There will be just enough space for me to have a comfy chair, a table and a small tv. He will be closing it in, insulating, putting windows on each end and either side of the door. As long as I don't add heat/air, take out existing walls or modify the roof, the city will still consider it a porch.
This is a house I am using for inspiration. I hope to end up with something similiar (minus the brick).
I talked to the contractor last week, and he gave me an estimate. He is going try to start either Friday or Monday (whenever he finishes the job he is working on now).
