So 8 months ago I purchased a 2 story home that was built in 1890 and 7 Years ago the home was moved off its foundation and Had a new poured one put under it and new plumbing and electrical and HVAC. So now here is the problem I have that i want to explain before I start making to many plans.. I NEED ADVICE.. It has a front porch on it that is about 30 inches off the ground and it stretches the width of the house.. 30ft it starts off on the north at 8 ft out from the house and than steps in a few times to get to 16ft. It has normal Deck Boards on it that have been Painted
and has 4x4 posts every 4 ft all the way around that sit on a sill plate and than there is a 2x6 top plate and than the original header for the porch. It has original Crown molding on the outside by the Fascia and on the inside where there was bead board on the ceiling and someone screwed on T-111 siding up there over it. All the Crown molding on the outside and the fascia is rotted So that's where i need to start and also there is a small sag on the north side towards the middle and the north is pulled away from the house about 1.5" on the bottom. There is also screen stapled in all the way around. ITS UGLY!!
So i would like to make a maintenance free porch new sofit and fascia and a trex style decking and PVC posts and maybe a Nova brick around the front... Now is it going to be easier to just tear the whole thing down and start over or what should I do? I can try and get some pictures on here tomorrow or something. This was the factor that made her not want the home as there is a smaler porch on the back in the same shape so its time to start planning and since i have never screened a porch or built a porch I could use some advice.. I cam prettymuch accomplish anything and i have all the tools just not always the time
