One of the best features of our house, in my humble opinion, is our screened-in porch. It’s a snug little spot that faces the backyard, with two walls of exposed brick.
For the first few weeks here at our new house, the screened-in porch was a convenient repository for discarded stuff. As a result, it was a jumble of boxes, stray furniture, papers, and trash bags, with a narrow path for ingress and egress. Gradually the detritus has been cleared away, and yesterday we finally configured it as we have wanted. It looks exactly as we pictured it — as a bright and tidy spot to have a cup of coffee on a warm and sunny morning.
With our screened-in porch on line, we begin to see the possibilities of our new house, and it’s fun.
