Project Curb Appeal: Portico Progress

Work is underway on the front portico face lift!  The structure and foundation of the original portico checked out a-ok so the project is going just as we’d hoped.  The existing roof and columns have been replaced and a new diagonal cross balustrade is already in place!

The new light fixtures from Ballard Designs have arrived, but unfortunately one was broken and needs to be replaced.  They are the three light version of the ones we added to the back porch last summer.

They’ve trimmed everything out since I took the picture and will be back today to paint and start on the two mini porticos and replacing the side doors.  I positively cannot wait to share a big reveal!!
