Living in New York City, one of the things I miss most is having a backyard. I live just a quick walk to the park, but it’s no substitution for having an outdoor space to call my own. I miss being able to host backyard barbecues, or even just sit on the porch and enjoying the sunset while reading a book or drinking a glass of wine.
I remember that, when I was a kid, my parents built us a porch from only raw materials. I have countless amazing memories from that porch, and I hope that when I’m a homeowner — and not just renting a tiny urban one-bedroom — I’ll have my own backyard where I can build an awesome porch by hand.
Who am I kidding? I can’t wait to hire someone else to build me a back porch.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t completely admire the DIY-ers of the world. A Reddit user by the name of My_DIY_Account recently uploaded photos of his project to turn a useless outdoor space in his “city backyard” into a totally awesome porch for him, his wife, and their dog.
