Day 5- Sunroom/deck construction

I think we have come a long way in only 5 days.
The deck is pretty much finished. 
Railing is going up first thing next week.
Stairs are almost done as well.
As far as the sunroom, 
they will be starting framing/windows/roof, 
also next week.
I am excited about it.
Our goal was to have it finished before Christmas, but that 

will not be the case.
We will still have to do some finishing work ourselves after their construction part is finished, so this will definitely not be done in any hurry.

We will do most work late at night + weekends, and with the cold weather upon us, I am thinking maybe we will have it all done by the end of January.
Maybe.

Either way, this room will be well loved.
I am still looking for furniture/things to use in this room, and today we came home with the light/fan to be installed in our new space.

ps. we are also considering buliding a storage room under there, and get rid of the "barn" storage that is falling apart on our property. But this is not going to get done until warmer weather cames our way (aka Spring time).

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

Dani- I can't tell from the pictures. Is there a doorway onto the deck from the house or do you go around and use the steps to get up there? It is going to be a wonderful space-and if it takes a little longer to get it done- no big deal! xo Diana

Looks like it's coming along nicely! I know you must be thrilled with the progress so far. Where will you be entering the sunroom from your house though?

Dearest Daniela,
You sure got some hard working men that did THIS much in so little time!
Never rush a good thing. You have done so many years without any of the benefits, so what does one month more mean?
Hugs,
Mariette

Looking good! This is going to be a great space. I was just going to ask how was the underneath space going to be used. But, you answered that already. Perfect!

Dani,
It is looking so good. It looks so close to being done. It will be a great space outside to entertain. I bet you are getting excited to almost be done.
