Porch Re-Construction in Wolseley

A beautiful example of a Wolseley foursquare with craftsman elements.

Slightly dilapidated, doors not closing, windows not opening, the rot is starting to creep up from below...

Jacking the porch back to level with the house is the first job. After that the rotten wood has to go (mostly at ground level or near vegetation). Then new footings and a floor beam go in.

The final product is a reclaimed porch with new skirting, stairs, metal roof, cedar deck and railing.
