RENOVATION UPDATE: Although the new roof is complete, we're still in the process of rebuilding the porch and staircases that lead to the house. Sections of the porch had sunk and needed leveling out. After raising and securing sections of the footing supports, we added 2 extra columns for added strength and aesthetics. We widened the front staircase, and replaced the outdated porch skirt. Once the front steps and railings are done, we can start all over again with tearing down the old side staircase and building up the new. CAN'T WAIT! And of course, painting will resume in the spring.
