|The restored porch after all of last year's projects.|
The leaning porch columns were taken down, new footings were poured, and the block was restacked as they were originally. Weak areas of the porch were reinforced from underneath and rotted wood along the top and bottom edges was replaced as needed. The metal roof was removed and replaced with a dimensional shingle that more closely resembles the slate on the turret. Lastly the broken steps were removed and new concrete steps were poured. This was quite a summer project -- now on to the next one!
