1914 Restoration


unfortunately more rot than anticipated, not surprised though!
And that's where I am as of 2-15-2014. I need to raise the front porch roof next to replace/repair rotten frame pieces and put in new decking. Then repair the back porch and replace the roof! DOH!

1914 Restoration


Unfortunately there's a little more rot than expected, I need to repair/replace framework as well as the top deck boards. Columns so far are all intact, only rot on the bases. We went to a vintage salvage shop and came across a gentleman making dining room tables from reclaimed tongue and groove pine boards like the ones I am pulling off, the wife fell in love with it as well as I did. Another project another day but looking forward to it it really looked great!
No sooner than the day after I raise the roof, we get a tornado warning!!! Luckily, there was no problems, light rain and only a little wind

Here are some more pictures of the deck in progress. Pretty much had to replace all the perimeter wood and most of the joist as well. My wife and youngest daughter stripping the window frames!

The craftsmanship in this house is remarkable! I am truly enjoying the renovation. It's busting my butt, but worth the experience and knowledge of century old carpentry.
