Friday Night Photos: The Porch is Gone! (House Renovations v. 2.0.1)
It’s been another exciting week of house renovations here. Last week I showed you a before picture of my house which is being completely renovated on the outside. Now the front porch is completely gone!
Here’s the porch loaded into a trailer, ready to get hauled away. I came home from work the next day and the trailer was empty so apparently my porch has gone to the dump!
After the porch was no more, the thoughtful contractor nailed a board across my door to make sure I didn’t forget and walk out of the house!
All the old shingles are also gone from the east side of the house now, exposing this wood which is nearly 100 years old, since my house was built in 1912. (Editing to add a note that the still-painted addition that you can see at the very back of the house in this photo is my office/photo studio where I take photos and write my blog posts! The rest of my house has new double-pane windows, but I’m getting new ones there as part of this project. Not looking forward to that process, but it will be nice to have the new windows, followed by blinds that can be lowered/raised to control the light!)
And if you were reading my blog last winter, you’ll know why I’m especially happy that the new water line is all completed! No more frozen pipes this winter; the new line is nice and deep. Stay tuned, lots more renovations to come!
