Porch Historic Replication Carpentry & Millwork in progress
This, in progress project Ive been working on recently, consists of a new back porch, and staircase from scratch. It is a 1906 historic home in Seattle’s Ballard West side quiet old neighborhood. Not far From Limback Lumber that supplied most of the high quality material for this project. In this post id like to show some of the replication custom millwork carpentry involved in what it takes to accurately match the home and specific era. The quality is immeasurable and no detail has been left unturned. Everything was built by me from framing to milling window jambs, making the shed door, modifying and installing millwork, and including making the custom staircase. All of these will be followed up in a series of posts to further dive into the detail of master craft elements that constitute the quality of this project. Ill forgo the framing, and installing cover over the project and mainly focus on carpentry millwork manufacturing and installation.
These photos show a kind of over all in progress shots through the project so far. Im not showing details of all the shop work, or interior millwork detail, or how I made the shed door right now. It is worthy to note though, that without a personal collaborative design approach with the client, there is no way the quality and unique design details that ill show in later posts would have been possible to match this unique historic 1906 home.
