We paid a contractor to soffit and fascia our side porch. Boy, did it need it! It looks amazing now. Just one bigger project remains for the outside–painting the siding, which we’re also going to have to pay someone to do, due to its high location. This might have to wait until next year, but we’re getting closer to done! We still have a couple of bigger projects left in the house (which we are handling), but we’re getting started on one of those this weekend, so there is progress on that front, too.
