Back Porch & Mudroom Reno

The bungalow is getting some work done to it.

The back porch is getting ripped off.  Mudroom gutted.  New windows.  Doors.  Insulation.  Siding.  Storage.  Paint.  Flooring.  And we're getting a new fence!  Best part we are not doing the work.  No fixer uppers for this one.

Super excited!!!

Especially because this will help a ton in the winter when mine and The Mr.'s closet is FAREEZing.  It's right next to the mudroom.  I hate putting my clothes on because they feel like icicles.  Honestly.  It's awful!  I dread going in there during the winter.  I feel like I'm walking into Antarctica.

My girls will no longer get splinters either.  The Mr. has pulled out tons from their little hands.  The deck was so old and we've not treated it.  Sadly, though, the steps are where I take so many of my product photos.  The weathered wood and it's nice grey color.  I will miss those steps some...Sigh.

We've also done many changes to the backyard and this is the final piece of the puzzle.  Well, at least right now until I find another backyard project....ha!

Work has officially started and I couldn't be more excited.  Eager.  My mind is constantly on the go with figuring out how I want it to turn out.  I'm sure I'm driving The Mr. CRAZY!  I want this.  No, I want that.  OK, no we'll do this.  How about this fixture?  Which paint color do you like?   What about this?  On and on and on...

I've found great inspiration, though, and have it all over my Pinterest board.  Come check it out here.


Now some pics of how the porch and mudroom look "BEFORE" the reno!
