Expand The Front Porch: Before

When Cheryl Smith and Skip McPherson first laid eyes on their 1885 Folk Victorian, in Reedville, Virginia, they saw a giant void where a gracious front porch had once stood. After a yearlong DIY revamp, the broad, friendly porch is back, and Cheryl and Skip's place is one of the most visited destinations on the block.
Porch: Skip, a seasoned renovator, tore off the ill-proportioned concrete-and-wrought-iron portico and designed and built its traditional-style replacement: an 8-by-32-foot porch constructed with pressure-treated pine posts and railings, composite decking, and a plywood beadboard ceiling.
