Watch That First Step

I should feel guilty (I don't), but I titled this photo "Keeps the Jehovah's Witnesses Away". The porch floor has been removed and there are several of the cross supports that need to be replaced. Looks like the decision to do the porch was made just in time. I knew it was not in good shape, but I did not think it was this bad.

"Watch that first step" when you open the front door is all I can say. The porch floor has to be done before the siding can be started on the front of the house. I was told that the beveled glass window will be ready next week. This morning I decided to stimulate the economy again. With new doors for the side and front, new storm doors seemed to be required for the back and side doors. They are still in the box, but will look good when they go up. The drive way side of the house is beginning to take shape.

Is this really my "This Old House"? The wood seen above the siding will be wrapped in white. I am really looking forward to that part of the project.

Stay tuned.

Wow, Ramble, it's going to look so awesome! Can we have a "siding warming" or "porch warming" party?

Hot Diggity!! New porch too! Amazing... it looks like a brand new home. You must just get all jelly inside when you look at it! You will be so glad you did this... It looks great!

Please, do you really think that would stop a Jehova's Witness? Not hardly.
