Front porch restoration

We realized that repairing the old front porch piecemeal was not a good approach. Not only were the floor boards rotting, the columns themselves were sagging and the whole thing was a big mess. So Ron and Marty took a week or so jacking up the porch, removing floorboards, discovering & replacing rotted or insufficient support lumber underneath. I helped with staining the replacement boards and placing the lattice. Here's the way it looks now.
