A Summer Project: Part One

With all the improvements done to my parents house since they moved in, they decided it was time to do something about the trailer park front-end of the house.  Unfortunately, I don’t seem to have a before shot, as in what the house looked like before we began this project.  The front of the house had a very uninviting set of steps and no walkway or path leading to them.  So to get to the front door of the house you would have to walk across the lawn.  Most people wouldn’t.  The first thing done was to rip down the set of steps and frame the new addition, or the soon to be front porch.

With the framing started we then added in the cross supports.

The level is a three foot long level to give you some idea of the size of this project.

My dad believes in overkill so he added one more 4×4 just left of the door to help support the center of the porch.
