Sorry for the awful pictures of the before…when we started the project I neglected to take before shots with the good camera. All the before shots I found in the bottom of my shoe box of pictures.

Basically the back porch was a wooden deck with wooden stairs. We had the iron railing installed to match the front porch just after we moved in.

Here it is today with furniture. We had the cabin re~stained…almost black!!!


The sidewalk along the side of the cabin. We added short wall areas for plants.

Here’s the sink area. The little door in the middle is a paper towel holder…so great and they stay dry in rain and snow. The three drawers on the right are, from the top, a cutting board, storage, and trash can.

This shelf used iron brackets from a local antique shop {not old} a board on top that I added an edge with 1×2. Then hung the hooks found at local gift shop.

And just in case you missed it, on the picture with the fire pit and furniture, just above the fire pit, pecking over the bushes is a stile. All the farmers will know what a stile is. The national forest backs our yard so we have this ugly barbed wire fence running across the back. We installed a stile to make it easier to go over the fence.

So can you smell the bacon?  Come on over for breakfast!
