Thank you. Yes I will have some 2x4s in between the floor joists to support the floor seams and keep it all nice and solid.

troy that is a great idea with the boards in the garden . i like it a lot great look , oh wanted too make a suggestion about the porch in the winter , that reminds me of a green house maybe you can try growing the cold weather crops in the winter . i don't know how cold it gets but may be worth a try . just a idea

I am actually going to change the boards in the garden a bit. I will cut them at 3 foot lengths and nail them together in blocks. It will look better and hold up nicely with no danger of tripping on loose boards.

I do hope to get a porch going before winter comes and keep my plants inside there. It will be a passive solar porch to help heat my home during the day and keep cold hardy plants in there.
