That looks fantastic.
What are you going to do with that gap to the left of the steps?

Likely a piece of white trim to match the white trim from the lattice surround going between the brick pillars up front. It’s not big enough to do a piece of lattice with trim.

In hindsight, I should’ve dug the hole for the stairs another 10” larger so that they could’ve covered that gap.

Looking fantastic ZIl. Huge improvement, you should be proud.

Got any extra siding from the house? That could fill the gap between the stairs and column perfectly.

We’ll likely have a piece of vinyl trim left over from the ribbon on the porch. NBD.

But very happy with how it’s turning out. Have had several neighbors offer their compliments thus far.

Had a couple shrubs left over from a customer job, had to pick up a couple more to complete my vision.

Getting antsy. Want to get irrigation set for the downspouts, but can’t do that until the gutters are done, and can’t get the gutters done until the aluminum trim work is finished by my FIL.

Really hate not being able to get stuff done right now.

Excellent work!

You'll like those shrubs. we've planted similar ones at each house so far, and they're surprisingly resilient and hearty. Always look great with shades of gold and green.

Well, got tired of staring at what was supposed to be a temporary bucket setup... also got real tired of the wind blowing them down.

So, downspouts are now hooked into an underground drainage tube.

Porch: Still not done. Might be time to hire someone and fire my FIL.

Just too much family drama, and he also fell and hurt himself on ice this winter.

Meanwhile, my permit comes due this fall. :doomed:

Never thought I’d reach this point.

Sounds like hurting himself is the perfect excuse to (politely) tell him to :gtfo:

Also, I'm throwing in the towel on completing the porch with my FIL - he's injured from a fall on the ice this winter, and also is buying a house - and this shit needs to get finished.

Was able to get the contact info for a contractor that did work on two of my neighbors' houses, he's going to give me a quote on finishing the porch. So, we'll see.

In the meantime, I've been working on greening up the backyard after a winter of abuse.

Aluminum trim finish work, soffit under the overhang, new gutter and downspouts, lattice underneath with framing between the piers, the ribbon around the perimeter, paint the pillars, and railings.
