Finally something is finished!! The Front Porch

Up to now we have been renovating things. Some of these things such as bedrooms are finished. Now something that we totally removed and built from scratch is finished.

Yes the Porch!!!!!

It was ripped down, rebuilt and is now a fully functioning porch with a great front door, somewhere to hang your hat … or coat… and to put your boots as well as a seat to sit on while putting boots on and a great shelf to display stuff on.

It is a great example of sustainability also. The frame is made from eco -ash, the cladding is all weatherboard taken from other parts of the house and garage and stripped of paint and reused. The ceiling lining is roof off cits of colorbond, the windows were bought at the tip shop, the door was the cheapest wreck of a door that I could find at the salvage yard and the tiles on the floor were a remnant lot at the tile shop.
