We (I mean the dad) managed to get the floor in the porch put back together, knock the cobwebs off of everything, put the covers on the cushions and arrange the furniture in the porch in time to relax and eat dinner in it last night. I’ve spent many evenings eating dinner in that porch and many mornings drinking coffee, but always before as a guest in the house. This will be our first summer living here and I think this room will be the most used room during the warm months.
On the list of things to do this summer is repainting the porch and the furniture, making a few new cushion covers and re-screening the windows. That will come later though. Right now this will do just fine.
The temperature actually got above 20°C by the end of the day on Sunday. Just by opening the door into the porch while we ate our dinner, the house warmed up by 2 degrees. I’m so looking forward to the warm weather. The cat is too.
