Back Yard Porch

The idea was to Add a backyard porch to combat the Texas Summer. We set out on this project after getting quotes to have it built. With the help of Family members (Free Labor) we built the patio for about 19% of the Price quotes. The project was framed and roofed in a 3 day weekend and then about a month of lighting, painting and trimming in the evenings. The toughest part of the project was connecting to the existing roof line.

  • Real nice work, I am a firm believer in doing what I can as opposed to contracting out as well. Just curious how this won February pipe challenge, I don't see any pipe in this project. But again, looks great.

    • Thank you for your kind words on my project. Ryobi has 4 contests per month. For February they have power to the people one winner each skill level in which I won. Then they have one pipe material winner. So next month there will be three general projects that go to any skill level and one winner of the peg board challenge.

  • Do you mind sharing how much the project cost you?
    By jacekole, on March 3, 2017
    • My project came in at $2,500.00 much cheaper than the quotes both in the 14,000 range. The brick pavers were already installed but this price includes the concrete footings I poured to secure the base. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
