In Two Weeks Time....

....we've gone from this...


To this..


To this...


To this...


And now we're scrapping Plan A (new slider, covered porch, patio and pool) and going to Plan B (new slider, bigger covered porch, patio). We had the pool guy over the other day and, even though we came in $3,000 below my estimated budget, we're eliminating the pool. No way we can justify spending 27G's on a hole in the ground we're only able to use 4 or 5 months out of the year. It's a no brainer. You get hot..come in the house, we got A/C. And with a roof over a nice big porch, we won't be roasting out back. That side of the house faces east and we get glaring sun out there till at least 4:00 in the afternoon during summer. Another plus...That roof will help protect the dining area in the kitchen from the heat. I mean, we cant even open the curtains for the slider cuz of the solar rays.
