So since we can't afford to buy a bigger home we decided to add onto our existing home. This was something I had invisioned for this house for years now. We had a covered patio right outside our kitchen which really was not getting used at all except by the dogs when they are outside. So I finally got my husband to go along with it and start this project. It is almost complete, now my house is 1400 sq feet instead of 1175. Here are some pics of the progress which happened very fast thanks to the Handy family I married into.
A kinda before shot, but we had already tore down the cover and broke apart the concrete patio.

I'll be sure to add more pictures as we finalize the project.
