Over the weekend Mr. Bird Nest and my son Rick completed another stage of the front porch remodel.
The new posts are 8×8 cedar and it helps that this is one of the things Rick does for a living.
Mr. Bird Nest had temporary posts holding up the roof and I’m happy to see those go.
By the time this is all completed, my hope is that this will look like it has always been here.
Rick built all the trim from cedar he already had so that saved us lots of money.
Mr. Bird Nest had already done all the work boxing in the trim on the porch.
I loved watching the trim go on.
If you can’t hire a professional, remember measure twice and cut once. It saves lots on materials.
What a sweetheart Rick is to do this on his day off.
Loving the look of these posts from the street.
Mr. Bird Nest filled all the nail holes today and did some more sanding.
Tomorrow the stain goes on.
