Past Project II

Since the previous owners included the back patio when they built and enclosed the den, there was no back door when we acquired the house. A window that had been originally in a bedroom, now in the dining room was in the West wall. A reciprocating saw, busted bricks, and a couple of trips to the home center and the window was now a back door.

Of course, that posed its own problem in that now the back door was three feet above the ground.
So, I bought treated lumber and built a back porch. The little bride indicated that she'd like to have shelves on the railings wide enough to sit flower pots on, so I accommodated her. I didn't know that she would hang outriggers on the shelves to put hanging pots on. This has caused the shelves to wrack and I'll have to deal with that - probably sooner than later...
