2019 will hopefully be the year we get our 4-season room/screen porch done! I am beyond excited. We have been in the house 10 years, and have a beautiful lot that we just don’t make the best use of. We feel like if we don’t just do it, we’ll never do it and get to really enjoy it. Minimally, we will do a screen porch with some deck for our grill & table too. I would prefer a 4-season room with windows if we can swing it. But, if Scott’s eyes bug-out at that cost, we’ll just dial back to a screen porch. I will just be happy that we can finally kick back out there & really enjoy it without all of the heat, bugs, bats, you name it, it’s out there!
We would like to do an outdoor living space at the same time. Some of our friends have done fireplaces in their screen porch, but I don’t want to do that. Scott would like a fire pit out in the yard, so we’re aiming for that.
And finally, we’d love to get a concrete slab poured out there for Scott & Rhett to have a basketball hoop. Scott loves to shoot hoops, and it would be much better in the backyard for Rhett & his friends as they get older.
After all is said and done, I still want to grow some food out there, but I will have to see the layout of the yard once everything is done. So, it may be a few years before I’m willing to put in the work to do that.
Do you have any home projects on tap in 2019? What plans or projects do you have for your house or yard this year??
