FRONT PORCH REVIVAL - THREE

I MATCHED THE CEDAR SIDING AND PUT ON NICE WIDE HANDRAILS.


NATURAL WOOD STAIR-TREADS COMPLEMENT THE PORCH FLOOR. 


I CUT OFF THE ROTTEN ENDS OF THE FLOORBOARDS AND REPLACED THEM WITH A BOARD THAT MATCHES THE STAIRS. THE OLD FLOOR CLEANED UP NICELY, BUT STILL HAS A LOT OF CHARACTER. 


THE SCALE OF THE PORCH AND STAIRS NOW MATCHES THE SCALE OF THE HOUSE FACADE.


 NEW PORCH STEPS AND A NEW FENCE:

This looks so good. Everything from the fence to the stairs. It always amazes me how simple details can transform a house.
