Wide Porch for Celebrations and Entertainment: After

Who: Cheryl S.
Where: Reedville, VA

To complete this renovation, I first removed overgrown boxwoods, removed iron railing, and removed the front porch concrete stoop. I then poured concrete footings, framed the porch with 2x12 treated lumber, and used composite decking for floor. I put on a green-colored steel roof and put tongue and groove ceiling in. The handrails and spindles were added according to code. I primed and painted to finish. We saved money by doing a lot ourselves. I can't imagine our home without this porch. It is used all of the time.

Who did the work: We did some of the work ourselves but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $10,000–$25,000
