Porch framing begins

Despite the several downpours today, they were able to start framing the west side porch. All framing is pressure treated. The deck will be Douglas Fir. We’re using Penofin Verde to seal the deck. It is the best ‘green’ sealer we could find locally. Later in the year we will trim out the pressure treated. For now, we’re just going with the bare minimum till we have a better idea of the final budget and move-in date.

    Who installed your cellulose insulation? I am looking to build a house a few town’s over from yours – can you send me an email with the contact information please?

    Thank you! And great work thus far!

      Hi Richard,

      We haven’t installed the cellulose insulation yet. Guessing it’s a month or two in the future. But I’ll send you the info for the company that will be doing the job.

      Thanks for reading.

    This porch is great. The framing is detailed. I’m sure after this construction, the result is amazing. Your sort is very informative and that is why I like it. Thank you.
