Okay because you asked. Here are a few pics of the porch being constructed – it’s really just a front stoop, not a real porch. You can see from this pic there is no protection for the front door; no overhang. I also threw in a pic of the house w/the original front stoop – but you probably can’t see it because it’s not the best picture to view that section. Sorry – it was the only one I could find.
I would love to have a real porch, but this house just isn’t designed that way unfortunately. I’d like to figure out how to add some type of cover over the front door because as we’ve found out in the last 6 years we’ve owned this house, the weather is just beating the heck outta the front door and all the wood around it. Plus, it’s not nice having someone standing in the rain waiting for me to open the door – but I don’t know what type of cover would look okay with the architecture of this house – and frankly, I’m far too cheap to hire some architect to redesign the front areaway. So, I’ll just finish up replacing the concrete in front and be done with it. This job also adds another step up to the porch as the original riser was just too high. So these pics reflect where Concrete Jeff finished as of yesterday and hopefully he’ll be back soon to pour the actual concrete. Wouldn’t it be funny if he never came back?
