Jeff from Hand Made Home finished our front porch. It looks amazing. It took three coats to get a nice even finish.
This was the before.
He obviously removed the old decking and replaced it with new wood.
The cedar for the back stair railing has been cut out. We got some help with the cutting from a guy named Tracy Livingston who used to be a contractor and is trying to get back into the game.
They were removed after this photo so I can paint them before the final install. Since we're out of the paint, I'm basically waiting for the next paint sale then I'll go buy a gallon.
I'm also waiting for several days of nice weather so I can sand down the deck and apply a new finish. Given the current forecast, it could be a couple of weeks.
