Project:  Front Porch Overhaul

Wooden box gutter had been leaking through fascia and soffit, leading to a badly deteriorated structural support beam.  The porch needed bracing, new framing, and a box gutter update.

In addition, I all of the "gingerbread" (the antique decorative solid wood) was carefully removed, sanded, painted, and reinstalled to create a seamless restoration.  One of the hardest aspects of this project was finding something similar to the custom-made crown molding on the fascia (for this, I talked my neighbor into giving me some of his (similar) crown molding during his own rehab.
