In which the hubby does something he's been wanting to do since we moved in

This weekend, my parents were here, and with my dad's encouragement, the hubby got to do something he's wanted to do since we bought the house.

He took down the awful awning-thing we have over the front door.

Getting ready to remove the offending awning. How many Ph.D.s does it take to do this, I wonder?

Just a few more screws to pull out...


It's going...



GONE! Whew.

Removing the last two supports from the brick.

After all that, my hubby stood back and looked at the front of the house and said, "Gee... it looks kind of bare."

Um, yeah. Yeah, it does.



  1. Wow, that's a toughie. It's a heinous awning, yes, but front doors need SOME kind of overhang or they just look... empty.

    Time to sketch out something with those cute fiberglass columns!

  2. Haha, yes, we are actually planning a portico with a front porch and some columns. Pretty sure it's a requirement here in Texas that if you have a porch, you need a porch swing too...
