Back Porch Update

Category: Restore & Repair

Work is now under way in ernest on our new back porch. We gave our friend and contractor TK the design a few weeks ago and in the past week he's gotten started on the project.

They've taken off the last remnants of the prior structure and put in new structural beams. They've also rebuilt the deck...we'd thought it might be salvageable but in the end it would have been more work to shim and correct it so we're just rebuilding it from scratch.

Things are moving pretty quickly now, so we'll have more photos to share next week including work on the new basement stairwell.

So fun to see the progress on the porch. What a wonderful warm weather spot it will be.

What will you do between the porch and the ground?

Good luck finishing up! I just picked up a contractor from econtractorbids.com, and I'm hoping things go smoothly. I have a similar outdoor project. My previous experience has been great, but this is my biggest project yet!

Looks like you are making some good progress so far, I hope all goes well and you are able to stay on schedule. What are your plans for the bottom half? Just support or are you thinking about two levels or room for storage?
