My sister Susie’s enclosed porch used to be the outside of the house before an addition was done in the 80’s.  She decided to spruce it up a bit (a lot) and pulled the awful industrial carpet up and there were beautiful hardwoods underneath!  There is a patch in front of the door because they had to fill in where the old steps were but I think it just adds to the charm of the history of the house.  The yellow siding was painted a beautiful blue/green and she painted the trim white and refinished the floors. When I say “she” I mean Susie and her significant other Travis, they are the do-over duo!
