Front Porch Remodel

After having the house re-leveled and the foundation repaired, we had to give the Porch a much needed remodel of sorts. When the house was raised up, the porch siding and window on the right side porch separated and broke since we did not raise the porch. Instead of rebuilding that side of the porch, we just removed it since it was not part of the original house build.

Next was replacing the siding on the left side to match the rest of the house siding already replaced:

I added a new top railing and replaced the old quarter round molding on the inside of the porch. Next was to replace several rotted plank boards in front of the front door, of course the new boards are not the same thickness as the old boards:

Next we chose a darker color green to pop the new green color we had the house painted, I hand scraped off as much of the old layers of paint, from the floor planks, that I could:

I also added new trim pieces to the window and front door, filled in the cracks and painted the two front columns and caulked all the way btwn the house and porch floor planks (no photos of the finished product).

good job keeping it simple.
I would’ve been tempted to tear it all out and rebuild everything. but then, where do you stop? gets expensive real quick, no doubt.

Seeing it painted, it looks fine….. Good for another 10 years.

That old screen door is pretty cool too.

Thanks Mark, the original plan was to tear it all down and start over, but we just ran out of time with all the other work on the house.

You did a nice job on the porch. Just curious, it looks like the porch is level. Did you keep a 3 – 4 degree pitch away from the house on the floor.

When raising and leveling a house, this is sometimes forgotten.

D. Thanks for the comments.
Originally, the porch was sloped into the house vice away. When we raised the house, we did not raise the porch which then caused the porch to slope away from the house. I know the picture looks deceiving, but when I pour water on the porch it did run away from the house, where before it didn’t.

That is exactly what you want. You may want to carefully inspect the structure of the house, under the porch. Many times when the porch is pitched into the house, you tend to get more moisture, rot, and more bugs.

Sounds like you did things correctly – good job.

Thanks, even though the porch used to be sloped into the house, it was a fully covered porch so that the only time it got wet was when I washed it.

Amazing, that looks new again, repurposing like this one basically goes its value up for most of foreclose houses or those needs to sell their own. I am so motivated with your idea, sadly that I only have limited knowledge in woodworking, and in fact my latest home improvement projects just by repairing the door, ruined it and ended up buying replacement one at http://caldwells.com/exterior-doors/front-doors.
