I didn’t get a chance to post pictures of our completed sukkah before the chag, so I thought I’d share tonight! Please make sure to link up to pictures of your own sukkah in the Virtual Sukkah Hop.
Also, very **IMPORTANT**. KOAB was apparently hacked (attempted to be hacked?) over the chag. The good people at my host restored the blog back to the pre-hack point, which means that Wednesday’s posts, plus any comments left on Wednesday, were sadly lost.
I have all your comments in my email, so I will try to repost, but if you want to repost a link to your sukkah before I get to it, please feel free! (If you emailed me pictures, I still have those and will share this coming week!) I am so sorry for any inconvenience.
And now, back to our sukkah…
We build our sukkah right off our kitchen/family room, so it opens up toward the inside of our house. Aside from blocking it from some gusty winds, this also allows us to skip the wall/door for the 4th side, which gives our not-very-big sukkah an airy feeling, I think.
Here’s how the sukkah looks from the entrance, with the right panel featuring the kids art mural and the left side our big ole Israeli flag:
And here is the right side wall, with all of the ushpizin posters.
And the left wall – aka the “art gallery”… I love adding new laminated pictures every year!
And finally, here is a shot of our schach – we brought the roll on the right back with us from Israel and bought a second roll from The Sukkah Project to fill in the gap on the left. Having the rolls is definitely faster than cutting down branches, though I do miss the palm we had in Israel! (Yes, those are “seasonal” lights purchased on 90% clearance at Target! ;-))
Thanks for visiting our sukkah! Now I can’t wait to see yours. Please be sure to link up to the Virtual Sukkah Hop.
