She Who Must Be Obeyed sent my brother out here last week with orders to take pics of the front porch we’re rebuilding this year (sometime … er, soon). He ran down his battery on fun shots, so here’s the photographic evidence.
First, for reference, a shot that shows both the rebuilt side porch at left and the decrepit front porch with its lovely 50s iron railings that we’ll get 3 cents a pound for.
Then we have a closer look at the front porch. Though I’m dying to ditch the door, we’re not going to get to that this year—nor to removing the siding that is trying to obscure the fact that the previous owner removed the double doors with leaded glass that the house originally had.
Then we’ll take a look at some of the problems with the deck.
And some skirting issues.
Our neighbor has offered to help with the work—you can see why!
