This morning I came home to see this. My porch completely demolished. It was a pleasant surprise though, one that we have been waiting for all summer. I have mentioned several times on this little blog that we are re-doing our porch and after many delays it is finally happening.
Well it better be happening now that you drop 3 feet when walking out our front door. Can you imagine if our contractor never came now? I am not sure what would be better.
Ok, so probably the first but I think it was only a matter a time before it looked like the pile of rubble above. Bran was out there helping with the demolition for awhile and he said that they gave it a few good blows and the whole thing caved in on itself. Not the sturdiest structure.
I wish I had the plans for the porch to show you but I don't and unfortunately I really can't find a picture of what we are doing which is so strange since it really is simple. We are adding a gabled roof a few columns and hanging light and some nice vertical slat molding on the base. I guess you will just have to wait for the big reveal. Hopefully it turns out the way we are envisioning it - or maybe even better.
In the meantime I just have to remember not to leave the house through the front door.
