Outdoor living is never better than when it looks just right.  Our new porch was meant to replicate the original on the front on a reduced scale.  Any visit to the home will show how close we got.  Woven cedar shingle corners, Fir deck, all the trim details are there.  Due to the burden of space to use the garage and another exterior entry, the size was kept small.  Outdoor entertaining will be done on a rock patio adjacent.  Interior work included a kitchen with walls being removed for expansion.  Look for other blog posts on the interior.  Job was on NE Halsey
