So excited...thank you Summerfield :)
And here's the plan Summerfield just finished! Very similar to before, but with some important changes. The porch off the back is glassed, with screens and can be a home office or extra bedroom, if needed, in the future. Also, the hot tub is back! Turns out we don't have to bring in heavy equipment and can build it like a covered deck and then screen it...so no damage to the lilacs :)
Thank you Summerfield...you're the best!
