Chad Begins to Rebuild the Front Porch
For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. -Hebrews 3:4
This is where we left off in the last post at the farm.
Chad’s neighbor, Dave, helped out by digging out the tree stump he felled by the house.
Chad starts to map out the front porch and placement of the concrete footings and anchors.
The holes are dug and concrete is poured in the front . . .
. . . and on the sides of the house.
The wood posts that will support the roof are laid out.
The posts are anchored to the concrete footings.
Chad uses a support to keep the post plumb.
All of the posts are supported.
The guys start building the deck over the basement stairs on the side of the house . . .
And preparing the deck to wrap around to the front . . .
Thank you, Brent!
Cross beam is set on the side of the house. My dad built that barn in the background when I was a little (random, side note).
Cross beam is set for the front porch roof . . .
. . . and all the way across.
The first board is placed to attach the roof to the support posts and cross beams.
Front view of the house after more progress is made on the roof.
Awesome panoramic view (looks like Noah’s ark).
Same view as our starting photo . . . .
And now we have the ability to envision a Ponderosa ranch house. Chad, this is sweet!
