Front Porch Project

Some good friends had a problem with the facade on the front of their house.  The wood in the top of the facade was rotten and eaten by Carpenter Bees, and they wanted a covered porch.  Here's what they had.

So I went to work, removed the upper facade, replaced the rotted wood on the base of the columns, and added a covered porch and hand rails.  I duplicated the dental detail work over the door to run the full width of the new ceiling.  I also routed the front of the columns to duplicate the decorative accent grooves from the original facade. As you can see from the pictures, they selected the fancier ballusters for the hand rails.  The home owners (and the neighbors) are really satisfied with the finished product.
