An Actual Room

Our sunroom progress is really taking shape, and the previous covered deck is starting to look like an actual room!

The main focus has been to get the exterior put on the addition... As of right now, the batten is only primed.  I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that Jeff will let me select a color to paint the brick and batten at the same time.  He is pretty firmly in the do-not-paint-brick camp, while I think it would be a great way to give the different siding styles a cohesive look.

We're also thinking about having a stone mason come and add stone around the foundation of the room, and possibly the front porch, if/when we redo the front of the house.

We are steadily moving along, and I give all the credit in the world to my husband, who comes home from a day in the office to work in the cold & dark and devotes countless weekend hours (some also in the cold & dark) to our project.  And also give tons of thanks to our dads, who have been putting in the hours themselves recently!

In related news, Jeff scored some great gift cards to Lowes & Home Depot for Christmas... Yay for sunroom budget help!
