Back in 2000 my wife and I bought the little house next door to us. It was owned by a bachelor who then married and moved into his wife’s home. He rented it out for a few years which was unsettling for us, not knowing who would be living next door every 12 months…It was also overgrown with huge bushes in the front and pretty much untouched for about 15 years.
The porch had termite damage so that was the first thing I worked on. The original porch was replaced back in the 50s with that black cast iron-looking supports and railing.
It took us two summers to finish the outside. It turned out well, and we have had a good tenant (who loves yard work) in it for the past 8 years.
