Front Porch Stair Historic Architectural Replication
This little front porch, stair case built by Westbrook not long ago, was a collaboration between myself and the owner. The client wanted to have a historically accurate vintage stair entry, that looked like it has been a part of the home form the beginning. Also with a large family and kids, it was necessary to have a space outside the porch that could be used to hang out on and take a lot of abuse. We chose to go with vertical grain cedar on all components for added longevity. I also pre primed all the wood before installation. On a project like this there is a combination of best modern, and traditional carpentry technique for the ultimate in custom quality. Many thanks for the family, and feeding me the best home made chicken soup Ive ever had!
