South and East sides of the porch are finished, except for splashing some stain on in one spot. The weather has been too stormy to work on a ladder so that stain will just have to wait.
I just barely started on the North side of the porch today. I'm going to tear out the existing stairs to the porch and totally redo the stairs. The new stairs will be under a roof and screened in so I won't have to shovel the snow off the stairs several times a day in the winter.
This is where the new stairway will be. As you can see, the framing will have to be totally redone, so it's a fairly big job (for one man working in his spare time). Plus I am out of lumber and will have to mill more boards before I can go much further.
