While there’s are still some fairly major changes coming (pillars!), there’s also a lot of finishing detail happening.
The porch trim is all painted out, as are the pillar supports. The front paint job just lacks the black detailing. It’s a very handsome picture. (Picture taken by Eric Carrington of Newlook Remodel, our painting contractor.)
This is from about a week later. If you look closely, you can see that the porch ceiling (fir beadboard finished as yellow pine) has been completed, and they’re putting up detail trimming under the porch fascia.
Here’s a better picture of the porch ceiling, before its final finish is applied, as well as a close-up of the fascia.
The beautiful Douglas fir floor, in all its autumnal glory, contrasting vibrantly against the gray and white of it’s painted companions.
The redwood treads of the permanent stairs…
…and their white painted risers.
Just finished painting the last pillar support plinth.
A view of the original front door with it’s newly painted white surround. I’m not sure what the plans are for the unpainted strip of trim at the top of the door surround. The dental molding marks are from the little porch era, I’m told, so it won’t be replaced, anyway. I guess every construction project wants to maintain a little mystery!
