This house once had a porch, but it had been removed by a previous owner.
The house is solid brick, with two brick columns supporting a gable where the porch used to be.
I want to build a new porch in this area; but am not sure of the best way to attach the porch joists, etc. to the front columns.
The columns are 22" x 31", sixteen feet apart, and six feet from the front wall of the house.
