A sweet couple asked me to replace their front porch with something much larger.
They had a concrete pad about 6 x 8 feet surrounded with brick and one step.
This is a picture that will give you an idea of the "before" idea.
Here are a couple of shots of the "after." Now they have a 10 x 34 deck with a roof over it, and places assigned at each end for a porch swing, and room to entertain, rest in the evening, or visit and watch the grandkids play.
I still have to go back and paint it to match the house and install the ceiling fans. The pressure treated wood needed time to dry before painting. I'll post some finished product pictures after that is accomplished.
How would you like one of these at your place?
