Default Progress on the back porch project.

Hello again.

I thought I'd post a few more pictures for those of you who've seen my deck porch project. Things are progressing pretty well but we have ran into a bit of a hot weather spell wise making it hard to get motivated with the caulking and painting but still I'm making progress.

On the picture of the ceiling you can see I'm using Can lighting and have adapted them for LED bulbs. I did have them installed but popped them out to prime and paint the ceiling, the ceiling is just primed now. I spent a lot of hours with a brush Sunday in the heat.
My arms and shoulders were worn out! The paint color for the ceiling will be the same color as the siding and the columns and trim will be White.

Wow, that should be the front of the house. Fantastic job Bryon, sure looks like you will have plenty light there. But that will come in handy when you close it in for your shop.( Just kidding)

Default Here is a 4 year old picture of the front of the house

Herb,

I'll have to take a new picture of the front and side (the same view like this old picture) I've added a deck on the side. This picture was taken 4 years ago April when the big tent was set up in the back yard for our daughters wedding. It shows the front porch style and what I wanted to mimic when building the back.
My idea when building the deck/porch on the rear was to try to keep the same theme as the with the new build as the old front porch. It's getting there.

We've been here since 1980, the house was built in 1920 and it's been quite a job trying to repair and remodel this old place. There is still lots to do.

Bryan

I think you did an excellent job following through with the style in your deck improvement. You have a lot of lawn to mow.

James,

I live in Independence, Missouri USA and in an old neighborhood where there are a few large plots of land. I have just over an acre but this lot size is not typical of Independence, I do have one of the larger lots around me.

It is really nice to have a little elbow room. That is a beautiful porch. I notice you put in some pretty solid concrete piers. How deep do they go?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Hi Tom,

The piers (7 of them) in the ground are 36 inches inspected by the city building inspector, he also checked how the construction was done and how the roof and ceiling portion attached to the existing structure/house. I was happy when he Ok'd it all. Yippy!

Oh, the columns are made out of fiberglass and rated at 10,000 pounds each so I should have enough support, I bought them at lowes and they are 8 feet tall. That makes for a lot of ladder work.
