porch update

Hoping, really hoping, to get this project started soon.
Finally have an estimate. It's slightly scary. That fake wood decking stuff is expensive, but so very worth it.
Will have drawings soon, I think.
And then we will probably shrink it some. Not for cost so much as for scale. What I really want is probably too big for the house. I'm willing to adjust for the sake of aesthetics. Totally. Who wants to look at their house every day and think, "what did I do that for?" No, if it looks out of proportion, we'll re-design.
I want at least 10 feet deep on the South end. I'll settle for anything deeper than 6 feet. Because if you go any skinnier, there's not much point in having a porch.
