I was at our porch project by the Ole Store this morning conducting the final inspection with the City Inspector. Everything was fine and was passed so we are wrapped up until spring painting can take place. As part of our work we reused the existing porch columns, adding interior reinforcement as required. That allowed us to install an electrical receptacle on the inside face of the porch column, creating a handy place to plug in a coffee or cider pot. We also trimmed the column tops to finish off the column….something that was not done on the original porch.
The owners have been busy finishing the new basement space. They painted the floor and are taping the walls and ceiling in preparation to painting. It will provide excellent clean, dry storage space.
