This 12-room home was built in 1932 with six bedrooms, a finished attic, and an enclosed 196-square-foot porch. Our client retained us to remove all the wood sidings from the roof line to the concrete supports.

The front porch was removed, and a new open porch was built with traditional-style pillars and a black rod-iron handrail system. Click the photo to view the project video.
