Well, the original front porch was starting to fall apart (after some 40 years!), and with my recent front walkway make-over, the front porch needed a make over as well..
Luckily, the basic foundation was stable, only the outside edges were crumbling. So I made a framework, knocked out the old steps, and put a small deck in its place.
Definitely a much needed face lift for the front of the house! Now I need to paint some of it, and slightly re-do the bed to the right, and my front yard will be where I want it for a few years.
