I feel like if I blink my eyes, when I re-open them something major has changed on the house.
This time when I opened my eyes, the front porch was well-underway. With the porch enhancements, we solved two things I really didn’t like about the original house:
1. We were able to get rid of the cheesy scalloped trim on top of the bay window. (sorry if any of you have scalloped house trim that I have now insulted as being cheesy.)
2. We were able to hide the fact that the 2nd floor is about a foot larger than the first floor. Why they designed the house that way, I have no idea. It almost looked like someone had decided to put an addition on the house, and they mis-measured the original house, but this was how they designed it from the very beginning. … very odd, but it’s been now masked under a brand new porch!
