Our porch is NOT "The Money Pit"

The contractors are making GREAT progress on our screened porch. I was told it would take 2 weeks to completer once they started. Instead, it is going to take about 4 days! I was told today that they expect to finish on Monday - except for some electrical wiring for a ceiling fan that won't happen until later in the week.

After ripping up the floor on Wednesday, they put in the entire new floor under the porch on Thursday and frame in the railings.

Today they put on the roof. They framed the roof, put on the plywood and framed it around the existing kitchen roof, removing the skylight.

We are looking forward to the porch being completed. It's so much larger than our deck was and we expect to enjoy it for many years. At least its cool now and we can enjoy it without the heat and humidity!! I'll share some final photos when its complete!
