One morning in May 2009 I awoke to my husband dismantling the louvered windows. Thus, the demo began and I joined in on the fun... The neighbors behind us started cheering us on as they saw their backyard view instantly improve with the louvers coming down. I'm sure our house was cheering too,I know I was. It instantly brightened up the Dining Room as light was now able to enter unobstructed.
The sunporch looked like this for about a year, until we finished residing the exterior and had some experts come strip the paint. SO glad we didn't think about replacing these doors with new ones. The fir was in pristine condition and looked brand new.
And once it got painted?

When we return from AZ, we plan to tile the floor (it's painted plywood right now!), hang some light strings, and possibly make some outdoor curtains to accent the space.
