Wooden Awning for Back Door
Like most of the house the back door awning was also in terrible condition and had to be rebuilt. For me, I find it very difficult to get anyone to work on an old house let alone a small project like this. So, I was very thankful when my carpenter savvy cousin, David said he would rebuild the awning. My daddy's old and rusty sheet rock scaffold came in handy for the project.
There was so much work to be done on the old farmhouse, but with each small or large project I was beyond thrilled and excited knowing the old house was coming back to life! I think my great-grandparents would be very happy with all the hard work and excitement that was being put into their home.
As my cousin, David worked on the awning, my son, Joshua is getting ready to cut down a small tree to make way for a new shed.
Since I inherited this old house it's become the hub for the whole family. Everyone gathers at the house to hang out, cook out or just enjoy the breeze under the pecan trees. A lot of activities were happening during this weekend...the back door was getting a new wooden awning, a tree was cut down and my sister and I were getting ready to assemble a trampoline for the children.
The trees been cut down and the awning is finished. What a great day at the old house...just a little yard debris to haul to the fire pit and clean up at the back door. Farmhouse beautification is in full swing...on to the next project!
