Last weekend, we tore down the front porch. Let me be more clear. The Mister and his father tore the front porch down.
If you follow me on Vine or Insta (Rachael__Anne) you saw the carnage and it was beautiful. Over the next few weeks we got big things happening. Here’s a photo with the project lists’ corresponding letters.
A: Trim the two plants on the left of the house.
B: Seed this area. It’s dirt right now from the massive pile we had earlier this summer.
C: Remove this gutter. This is not needed anymore as it was the downspout from the gutter around the porch.
D: Replace the storm door. If you want it, email me.
E: The fascia is being replaced and new 6″ gutters are being put across the front of the house. Then, an awning will be installed.
F: Replace tiles and fix some of the chips. Then, paint it.
G: We’ve been told by more than one person that the top of the window is weatherproof. However, we want to be super sure. So, we have a tarp over it and will be brainstorming a way to cap it.
H: Paint! This is happening in the next two weeks.
I: Plant something here. We’re thinking “monkey grass.”
J: These are some of the boxwoods that we planted. I’ll share the rest of the landscape later.
K: Window boxes need to be made and installed
L: Shutters need to be made and installed
Many thanks to The Mister and his father. They worked hard.
If anyone is interested in the porch supports, email me.
