Face Lift

I was going to post a bunch of pictures of the porch, but it just seemed like overkill. Even looking at this side-by-side comparison, it doesn't look like much of a change or even show how much effort went into it. But, I'm OK with that. A lot of the fixes are kind of behind other things - a rotten facing board is behind the new fascia, rotting wainscoting in the ceiling was replaced with trimmed-to-fit new lumber,a damaged eaves trough was replaced with a matching one*, and a very poorly done molding was replaced (don't try to tell me, "they did it better back in the day." The goof-ups on our house are evidence enough that, in fact, "back in the day" some people had no idea what they were doing.) Actually, this photo probably shows how our neighbours have done a lot more than we have on the porch - check out those sandstone steps. That's for another day, right now I hear a drip that needs fixing.

*Yes, it was me that damaged the eaves trough in the first place, but that's beside the point.
