Relaxing Front Porch



When I first moved into my home, there were some things I knew I had to update. The first one was the previous owner's idea of a front porch - a concrete slab with a big old couch sitting on it. Not exactly my idea of a welcoming front porch! The thought of breaking up all that old concrete was not high on my list, so I decided instead of removing it, I would cover it up. I built a deck over it using Azek, put in some low-maintenance landscaping, tossed out the old couch and added two adirondack chairs to create a relaxing place to sit.
