Exciting developments!


We have added  most of the standard porchy frills, including…


fluted pillars, round and square…


and railings, complete with ranks of turned spindles.


These elements work harmoniously with the existing trimly furbelows…


to add a truly elegant character to the sheltering and structural functionality of the porch.


Some of the round pillars were original to the house, making up the first porch. They were cut down for the little porch, and built back up for our new beauty.


Unfortunately, measuring twice doesn’t always prevent mistakes, so we had to do some adjusting to get a perfect fit.


But, you’d never know it from the final product.


The square pillars were constructed in situ. (That’s almost a visual history of the clamp right there.)


Those were the last major elements needed to make the house look like it truly belongs in our historic neighborhood.
