The front knee brace and our front porch have some dry rot issues. Since we have the proceeds from selling the Prineville house, we decided it was finally time to deal with some lingering issues with this house. Unfortunately, our skills are not up to dealing with these projects so I have been looking around for a contractor who could help us.
For the porch, I was hoping we could just replace wood in the affected areas, but nobody wants to touch it because of the age and likelihood of lead paint. It turns out it's easier to find someone to rip it out and replace the whole thing than it is to just repair it.
