Southern Screen Porch with Shiplap

Tuesday, July 6, 2021

I want to show you just how far our screen porch has come since we moved in a year and a half ago. This was our first major project on this house.  This just shows what a great contractor, sweat equity, and about $3,000 will get you. This pricing was way before lumber prices went up though and most of the project supplies were Hardie board.

This is how the porch looks now (sort of, we got new furniture that I haven't photographed yet).



This is what the porch looked like when the house was listed.  I'll wait right here while you scroll back up and down ;)


This was taken shortly after we moved in.  It wasn't terrible, but we didn't have any privacy. 


This is what our porch looked like in our last house for reference.


And back to our current porch. What a difference one wall can make!



Lucas and I made this faux succulent insert last summer for the "firebox".  Nick built the mantel to my specs.






My friend Jessica, from Something Blue Farmhouse, came to visit in June and we hung out on the porch. Jessica helped me style for a photoshoot while she was here. 















Wow! You made it to the end of this photo filled post. I hope that it inspires you!  If you feel overwhelmed by this sort of project, give me a shout!
