Front Entryway Remodel picture overview of the process

Feb 23rd: Start of demo, say goodbye to awkward front door location/level, and super tiny and tall stairs to the loft. They've already leveled some of the unevenness in the floors in this picture.

March 10th Exterior: New front porch roof finished (and missing corner of the roof filled in) and bricks cut to make way for the new front door.

March 10th Interior: new stairs built and entry way floor level raised

March 12th: front porch cement poured, and old front porch foundation raised a bit to faciliate closet that will be built there.
