So a couple of days ago, I planted all my new plants in the native gardens I am creating out front. When I put new plants in the ground, I tend to get a little obsessed with their well being, so I went out to check on them that night. When I came back in through the porch, I saw light streaming up through the floorboards. Hmmm...
Now I should mention that we have a full basement under the porch. Before checking on the plants, I had done a load of laundry and left the basement lights on.
I decided to investigate. I went to the basement and noticed the ceiling looked strangely like porch flooring. I also noticed the joists were a little off. There were twenty four inches between them. I went back up to the porch. I walked on it. It bounced. There was no subfloor!
